Re: HOMELESS SHELTER

Hi Pat, thank you for caring about our homeless population.


The City of Menlo Park actually works with a number of service providers to provide housing our homeless population. Unfortunately some of our chronically homeless choose not to go into shelters. For those on the street we have started to provide wrap around services, to address their needs, gain their trust and move them into housing. The law is very strict on our interaction with our homeless population, and our police and housing department do an exemplary job of working with the County to comply with the law with how we interact with this at-risk population. If you would like to donate your time or services, LifeMoves and Samaritan House are two local organizations working hard to help those in need. ?


With kind regards,
Ray Mueller

This is such a bright idea, you'd think I was a Menlo Park Mayor or Menlo Park Council member, why don't you house the homeless and their "shopping carts" in any empty storefront in downtown. Think about it, it would get the homeless off of the streets and stop them sleeping in front of the same storefronts. How about the recently vacant Stationary Store on Santa Cruz, don't ask the landlord, just do it Mr. Mayor, just like Gavin Newsome would do.
