Our discussions should be about solutions to end homelessness for all under-served populations of homeless neighbors, residents & citizens of Savannah, not about vagrants & feedings!
The project is called Oma Village after a grassroots effort started last year by the Rev. Betty Pagett of San Rafael known as “Oma” to her grandsons to support homeless families. For more details, please see the Homeward Bound blog on Novato Patch.
We found this project with our good friend Google!
Here’s a robust example of a serious commitment (to the tune of $3M) to take forward what was once a grassroots project by a Pastor!
This is not much un-like our efforts here in Savannah, GA & as we write this we are stymied with the process & concerned that the priority of those involved is not necessarily to create the solution together.
Therefore, we are reaching out to others with developed hearts for this effort who may be able to put us all on a path that more readily gets the project off the ground.
