Reader's View: Homelessness is a health issue
The effort now to end homelessness among older folks also is welcome.
This is in reference to " St. Luke's, CHUM aim to house homeless seniors, " by Peter Passi, in the Sept. 30 News Tribune.
St. Luke's deserves thanks and credit for recognizing that homelessness is a health issue, and for investing to provide housing for senior citizens who are homeless.
Lutheran Social Service built the Center for Changing Lives with the commendable goal of ending youth homelessness in Duluth. The effort now to end homelessness among older folks also is welcome.
