Look at what services are provided: PATH Walk: Making strides to overcome homelessness in Tehama County – Red Bluff Daily News Online

Klein said the organization does not always get a lot of response, especially since many people don’t understand what it does.We don’t just take people off the street, Klein said. We educate them and give them skills.

Here is an example of what problems an organization delivering services to the homeless has educating their communities about the realities of the value & approach they use to serve the homeless.

The fund-raising event they talk about needs support in their community, yet they aren’t sure their message of how they make the people they serve accountable for the change they need to get out of their situation.

There are “wet shelters” & there is a need for them, as all people who haven’t made that step to sobriety still need to be taken care of at some level.

So, the lesson for Savannah is to look deeply at the agencies who provide services in Savannah & support the ones that you feel comfortable with their mission, services & level of accountability for change they undertake in their missions.
