"Jeannie went to jail this morning for not leaving camp. Many stayed at SafeGround Pilgrimage church last night. No church tonight" ~ [ This past week Jeannie and Eli [ were arrested in Sacramento for being homeless. They lived along with about 125 other homeless people in an organized tent community called Safe Ground [] Jeannie worked as an in-home nurse. She lost her job and her place to live on the same day. Since April she has been living in a tent in Sacramento. Kind of ironic Jeannie talks about the city counsel changes needed and the prospects of Sacramento allowing the campers to have a place to live is only days before they were forced to move. The old hippie in me loves the self-governing tent city model, but really the only reason a tent community even exists is because homeless services has failed to provide adequate support. What are your thoughts on this controversial issue? Special thanks to Safe Ground http // more stories follow // follow
