Homeless shelter worries Rosemont residents

A plan to convert a disused Rosemont church into a shelter for the homeless – this was already reported in January – is said to be worrying residents because it’s near schools and daycares.

Tell me, where would you put such a facility in town and not be within range of a school or daycare? There are children and children’s services distributed throughout the city, just as there are homeless people. Unless you set aside a piece of fenced land away from residential areas and create a kind of concentration camp, the homeless will have to be helped somewhere near you.
