Sorry, we left you off the email list earlier.
To whom it may concern:
Our group is still in the process of raising funds for our shelter project.
There are some individuals, within city government, that apparently misunderstood part of our plans. We do not intend to partner with the government services offered, such as DHSS, MediCal, SNAP, WIC, etc. We do not want this project to become overrun with government input. These services will be offered office space, within the shelter facility, at no cost, in order to help speed the resident’s applications/qualifications for assistance. In NO way will government services be involved with the operation of the shelter facility.
Additionally, we paused in our notifications to the Eureka City Manager, Mayor, and City Council Members, as we secure property and finalize the building plans. We appreciate your interest in our shelter proposal, and will have a representative contact each office personally, withing the next few weeks.
As for the total raised thus far, we have raised a substantial amount toward construction and the operating expenses. Although Mr. Sparks is “dubious” of our efforts, and expressed himself, rather rudely to our representative last week, we still have plans to present the project to the city, for permits, and to the county, for zoning/clearance of the site. We understand that getting all the city, and county, offices in line, and signed off on the project, will take some time.
As for our donors, we remain steadfast that they remain anonymous throughout the process. The reason for this is simple; we do not want their current, or future business prospects affected by the controversial issue of homelessness in Eureka.
We all know that local governments have failed to properly address the growing homeless population in a manner that accounts for ALL homeless in Eureka. We plan to make the difference, in a manner, that excludes government involvement completely.
Again, Eureka Citizen is still here, and is still in process of finalizing the full proposal. We will be ready, soon, for all of Eureka to support this project.
If you believe this shit we have this bridge…………………
