More homeless seniors. . .
Some old folks are sleeping in their cars. Read it in the Seattle Times here:
Operation Nightwatch has 24 units for seniors, shared bath and community kitchen. Furnished room, with late night dinner thrown in for $250 a month. Must be 62+. It's amazing how many people can only afford that much rent.
I get the feeling we're about to see a huge shift in demographics in our homeless population.
The one comment though, that I found interesting. One of the interviewees wouldn't give his name: "I don't want my kids to know I'm homeless."
Something haywire there.
The guy pictured here worked for 10 years as a dishwasher before retiring in our building. Not sure where he would have ended up otherwise. . .
