Last july i found myself in

Last july i found myself in lakeside among the homeless.....why?? My brother hadnt been heard from since Dec 09. I found him there by choice he has chosen that life. He is clean from drugs and now sober after many years! I spent 3 days in his world. I know of 13 people i met during my stay that you can add to that list.

Hello, thank you for sharing

Hello, thank you for sharing your story and I am glad to hear the good news about your brother's sobriety. The reason for the night count was presumably to avoid double counting the people without homes. I personally disagree with it. The counting was done mainly by driving around and no pedestrian would be able to outrun a car. Not even the ones who have a bike. I believe the counting should be done during the day, preferably early morning when people without homes are most likely to be visible and settled in one place. So, yes, i agree with you, most of the homeless people in Lakeside didn't make the count, which is truly regrettable. Good luck to your brother and his friends. Ana Nita
