I was so happy when a friend showed me this news article about Walnut Commons in Muncie, Indiana. Walnut Commons is a new apartment community building with a medical center attached, especially designed to meet the needs of the homeless people and help them transition out of homelessness. I hope other cities across America would follow this example. This approach to homelessness has been proven to be effective in other cities, and I hope it will become a standard community service in every city in the U.S., just like public schools and police department. I see this as a very viable solution to the problem of homelessness in America.
Please click on the link below to find out more about this project, see more photos, and perhaps consider how you can help start something like this in the community where you live.
If there were more compassionate and creative people like Veronika Scott, the problem of homelessness can become a thing of the past in America.
