What can I do to help? What do I get out of helping people in need?
Why is this continuing? Simple: if someone isn't making money, they must come up with a way to get more from people who have none. They fine homeless people for panhandling and trespassing and since they have no money, send the homeless people to jail where the jails make money from slave labor, guards make money from babysitting them and clothes manufacturing makes money for the jumpsuit and food industry makes money feeding (yes, I said feeding people, after all, that IS all we are to them).
A place called Community First Village is ran by a non-profit called Mobile Loaves & Fishes (this group is often seen in mobile food trucks but no one knows when or where they will show up, Austin is the most disorganized city I have ever seen) charges $225 per month to live in a tent. The village is a giant advertisement for construction companies that "donated" supplies and time to build some of the "tiny houses". More pictures can be found on #HomelessEcoVille's site.

I had the opportunity to work day labor for 21 days.One of these jobs I went on was a furniture moving job. All the brand new furniture came in boxes that had "made in ___" on them and not one was "made in USA". The guy that hired us, was getting upset with the "bad" job we where doing. It took all my will power not to tell him "buy American" and walk off the job because at one point in my life, I worked in a furniture manufacturing plant that no longer exists. Day labor serves: After 21 days, I had earned $1235 and take home of $984. How when your spending $500 or more a month on rent, does one live? Oh, and by the way do not get sick.
In conclusion, we must mention the worst place of all. A place called Angle House. If the board of health where to stop by ANY place that is this filthy, how fast would it be closed? How old must someone be to be treated like an adult? Go to this place, find insects in your soup and not considering it healthy, not want to eat it. Then, you are suddenly talked to as if a child. "If your not going to eat something, don't take it".
Ask yourself every day: Why am I doing this?
