A question for social good too! Made in Savannah | Why does Savannah seem to thrive on “good enough” instead of pushing for greatness?


Made in Savannah | Why does Savannah seem to thrive on “good enough” instead of pushing for greatness?.

After poking around on the “Made in Savannah” website I thought this particular post on the blog needed to be shared – it’s a question we as a City need to grapple with as we craft solutions to the things that need working on, like ending chronic homelessness!

Is it “good enough” to just build another shelter or clean up the squares to push our homeless people out of them, is it ok to sweep the tent cities with nowhere for the people who live there to go?

We think not, so read this post & see what you think about “doing just enough” as applied to social good!

It’s also sometimes called “common good” but that stirs up debates about free enterprise & capitalism that we believe just don’t need to come into the conversation of homelessness. If everyone has the same opportunity then maybe! Just a side note from the Advocate perspective!
