Sounds Like Prison

IMG_0030

It’s very common for homeless service providers to say

“They don’t want our help. They don’t want to be told what to do. They want to be homeless”.

Let me ask you, does anyone want to be told what to do?

We live in a world where, for the most part, we have freedom of choice, yet we offer people experiencing homelessness a world where they have to get up when we tell them to, stand in line for food when we tell them to, eat what we tell them to, go to bed when we tell them to, take a shower when we tell them to, and so on.

Many faith-based organizations add on to this forced religious programming and church attendance.

In far too many situations we offer people experiencing homelessness a world with very little choice.

Sound like prison to You?
