Should Homeless Shelters Serve Only Vegan Food? 

 

Serving plant-based meals in shelters would alleviate health concerns about serving animal products to vulnerable people. Evidence is growing for the many health benefits of plant-based diets, and organizations like schools and hospitals are making the switch (and making the news for it). Last year, New York passed a law requiring that all state hospitals offer a plant-based option at every meal. The American College of Cardiology is encouraging every hospital in the country to follow suit. A shelter’s decision about what types of meals to serve should be made by consensus, one that includes the members of society who require the shelter’s services. Food-insecure people are especially vulnerable to adverse health effects; it’s important that they, too, have access to nutritious fare.

Homeless centers say they have been forced to shut in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 

 

NEW YORK, March 23 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The coronavirus is causing the closure of homeless centers across the United States, putting LGBT+ people without housing at increased risk of suicide, health complications or hate crimes, according to homelessness experts.

Homeless centers said they have been forced to shut their doors in order to follow safety precautions over social distancing as enforced by international governments and health organizations.

There are about 10,000 shelters for homeless people in the United States with an estimated 250 LGBT+ centers, largely in metropolitan areas, according to The National Coalition for the Homeless, a network of homelessness advocates.

There are currently no estimates on the exact number of shelters closed in recent weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak.

‘I Think People Will Starve.’ Experts Are Worried About the Hundreds of Thousands Who Could Lose Food Stamps Come April 

 

Kate Maehr’s job is about to get a lot harder. Maehr runs a food bank that’s part of a network distributing nearly 200,000 meals around Chicago every day. But last year, official unemployment figures for Cook County, where Chicago is located, improved. As a result, some 50,000 residents are at risk of losing their benefits from the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), better known as food stamps.

With so many people getting less help from the government, Maehr knows they will turn to her charity for help. What she doesn’t know is if she’ll be able to feed them. “We don’t have the ability to all of a sudden replace all of those meals that people will lose,” says Maehr, executive director and CEO of the Greater Chicago Food Depository. “I guess in my heart of hearts, the thing that keeps me up at night is that I think people will starve.”

The Number of Homeless Students Now Matches the Entire Population of New Hampshire 

 

The number of homeless students nationwide has more than doubled in 15 years to a new high of 1.5 million in the 2017-18 school year, according to data released from the National Center for Homeless Education last week.

For context, that means there are as many homeless students in America as there are people living in New Hampshire — if not more.

The big question is why — which is complicated by the fact that student homelessness is measured differently than homelessness among the adult population, and still considered a vast undercount.

Homeless People Are Facing More Punishments For Existing, Report Finds 

 

“There is no comprehensive data on the extent of criminal justice debt owed by poor people, but experts estimate that these fines amount to billions of dollars,” the report found. “These fines, if unpaid, can result in incarceration, even though so-called debtor’s prisons have been ruled unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.”

It’s a financial loss for cities, too, the report argued. Studies in multiple municipalities have found that governments save money when they help house homeless people instead of spending money to incarcerate them or hospitalize them with conditions linked to living unsheltered.

Officers Open Fire On Dogs 'Tearing Apart', Dragging Homeless Man On Street 

 

Officers from the Philadelphia Police department opened fire on dogs to stop them from attacking a homeless person in Hunting Park. The attack happened early on Monday morning at the intersection of 6th and Tioga.

Carmen Velasquez, a neighbor, claimed she heard him screaming for assistance in Spanish and saw the dogs on top of him literally tearing him apart.

Surveillance cameras caught the incident and showed video of two dogs biting and dragging the 54-year-old man.

The attack apparently lasted more than 5 minutes involving a pit bull, and a bullmastiff estimated to be 100 pounds.

Velasquez claimed he could not escape despite the attempts to chase the dogs.

Rise in homeless numbers prompts outrage and alarm across L.A. County 

 

Most nights, Jeremias Ortiz has to shoo away homeless people who sleep and panhandle outside his restaurant, El Salvadoreño in Duarte.

The men and women living in the parking lot are bad for his business, but as their ranks swell, it has become a fact of life — as has cleaning up broken glass, urine and feces.

“They don’t have a place to put [homeless people] in this area. I think it’s where all the problems start.” Local officials, Ortiz said, “are just ignoring the people’s needs.”

According to the latest point-in-time count released Tuesday, the number of homeless people in the San Gabriel Valley jumped 17% from 4,282 in 2018 to 5,021 this year — the second largest bump in Los Angeles County. The largest was on the Westside, up 19% from 4,401 homeless people in 2018 to 5,223 this year. Both outpaced the overall increase of 12% across the county.

Justices reject B&B owner who denied room to gay couple 

 

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left in place Hawaii court rulings that found a bed and breakfast owner violated the state's anti-discrimination law by refusing to rent a room to a lesbian couple.

The justices rejected an appeal from Aloha Bed & Breakfast owner Phyllis Young, who argued that she should be allowed to turn away gay couples because of her religious beliefs.

"Mrs. Young will rent a bedroom in her home to anyone, including those who are LGBT, but will not rent to any romantic partners other than a husband and wife," her attorney, James Hochberg, said in a statement. "This kind of governmental coercion should disturb every freedom-loving American no matter where you stand on marriage."

Medieval Diseases Are Infecting California’s Homeless 

 

Jennifer Millar keeps trash bags and hand sanitizer near her tent, and she regularly pours water mixed with hydrogen peroxide on the sidewalk nearby. Keeping herself and the patch of concrete she calls home clean is a top priority.

But this homeless encampment off a Hollywood freeway ramp is often littered with needles and trash and soaked in urine. Rats occasionally scamper through, and Millar fears the consequences.

Infectious diseases—some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages—are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.

Activists sue city over lack of data for homeless students 

 

The city is refusing to say what it does to ensure that homeless kids get placed in shelters near their schools, a lawsuit charges.

The Manhattan Supreme Court suit comes on the heels of a dismal report by a legal advocacy group, which found that a record one in 10 students in the Big Apple are homeless.

The nonprofit Partnership for the Homeless had then asked the city’s Department for Homeless Services for data about its efforts to place kids in shelters near schools they attended before ending up on the street. The suit says the DHS responded by saying that only a single relevant document exists, and it’s exempt from disclosure under the state’s Freedom of Information Law because it’s an internal draft.

Trump plan would raise rents on poor people by 26% on average 

 

The Trump administration’s latest attack on housing assistance would boost rents by an average 26 percent for millions of financially vulnerable Americans and increase the risk of homelessness, a Center on Budget and Policy Priorities analysis found.

Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson claimed the “Make Affordable Housing Work Act,” which he announced on April 25, would create a path towards self-sufficiency for low-income Americans receiving housing assistance.


Under the plan, which still needs Congressional approval, people receiving housing assistance would see the percentage of their total income they are required to pay towards housing increase from 30 to 35 percent. It would also raise the minimum monthly rent on the 712,000 most financially vulnerable families from $50 to $150 per month, eliminate deductions for medical care and child care, and allow housing authorities to impose work requirements.

Today at SXSW, an Austin-based startup will unveil its approach to combat that deficiency by using low-cost 3D printing as a potential solution.

California seeks solutions to homeless sex offender rate 

 

California has as many homeless sex offenders now as it did 2? years ago, when a state Supreme Court ruling that overturned restrictions on where they could live was seen as a way to increase housing options and allow law enforcement to better track them.

The number of homeless offenders more than tripled after voters banned sex offenders from living near schools and parks a decade ago.

This trans woman has started an important conversation about homelessness
