Episode Summary

Thomas says the homeless situation in New York City is atrocious. He's been homeless 2 years and has tried shelters, but he keeps getting in fights trying to protect what little he still owns. According to Thomas homelessness in New York City is a business. He says there is no housing, and all they have to offer is soup kitchens. About a year ago I found a group of homeless friends sleeping on the church steps. Now, Thomas says because the homeless people were urinating on the steps the churches stopped allowing them to sleep there. Wonder what would have happened if the CHURCHES OPENED THE DOOR SO PEOPLE COULD USE THE BATHROOM?!! Thomas is panhandling to get breakfast for the following morning. He pays $2.25 to get on the train and rides the training all night to sleep. Thomas is not alone as train sleepers are common in most urban areas. But that still is no way for people to live. Thomas is part of a group called Picture The Homeless [] that I support. The group did a study that there are enough abandoned buildings in NYC to house all are homeless friends. Now that sounds like an idea that could be mirrored in many cities.moreless
