Housing the Homeless in Auburn

I appreciate the Auburn City Council’s conflict with designating a place for a potential future site for a homeless shelter to be built should anyone want to build one with 20-beds in the city limits. I do not understand why people turn a blind eye to what is already here. The homeless are here and they are in your back yard. Wouldn’t it be better to offer our homeless a place to go that has services and food for the night rather than pretending they don’t exist and leave them in the city’s many homeless camps? I appreciate the council taking a drive to look at the streets to see where a shelter could be built that won’t offend anyone but maybe the council members should take a look behind the neat and nice Auburn neighborhoods and see where the invisible homeless are living, drinking, smoking, and having camp fires. Maybe they will realize that having a shelter will protect the homeless and the residents from the effects of homelessness in Auburn. I doubt that will happen so I made a little video of my recent trek to homeless camps in the City of Auburn with Auburn Police Officer Blanco. http://youtu.be/pW0PlwU8jfg
