No Where To Go But Jail?
We’re fortunate in Hood River. Our law enforcement has been so supportive of our shelter and often go out of their way to help those living outside. Our community, too, is amazing with numerous volunteers spending hours keeping our shelter and food bank stocked and open for those in need. But around the country there’s a growing trend we need to be aware of. Many places are criminalizing homelessness and even making it illegal for those who care to hand out blankets and food.
