Strategy to End Homelessness in Monmouth County Is In The Works

Comments are sought on a draft report on a plan to prevent and end homelessness. A formal presentation is scheduled for Wednesday.

Over the past five years, the homeless population in Monmouth County has remained relatively stable at about 600 – 650 adults and children, according to government officials. In 2013, the county experienced a spike in the emergency shelter population, directly related to Superstorm Sandy, but as those families find permanent shelter, that number is returning to typical levels. 

The Monmouth County Homeless Systems Collaborative wants to figure out how to better address homelessness. 

The public is invited to read their preliminary report, the Monmouth County Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness,  and submit comments by the end of July to tkelly@monarchhousing.org. 

A formal presentation of the plan is being offered on Wednesday, July 9th at 10 a.m. at the Agricultural Bldg, 4000 Kozloski Road, Freehold, NJ.

By now hopefully the pro amnesty idiots are starting to get the point that by eliminating freeloading leeches sucking up our tax dollars we can get out of this mess .......... ..... so here's #5. I hate to say it but getting rid of ILLEGALS by simply enforcing Immigration laws on the books already solves the homeless problem easily and there's NO REASON to not deport them all. Plus if we seize the assets of ALL ILLEGALS and auction everything off, we can pay down the deficit along with taking away one of the many, many reasons they ignore the law and sneak in. Usually we send them home with all the acquired here working ILLEGALLY along with the fruits of the crimes they commit here like selling drugs, prostitution, theft and so on. Make it a bad thing to sneak in and they'll never come back. Keep giving them welfare, full free medical care, free food, fee apartments, free cel phones etc and they'll risk their lives and the lives of their small children just to get welfare here.

time for a break so this one's as bit different, but just a tiny bit.................... #6. cut FOREIGN AID dramatically, NOT Social Security and CUT IT NOW! Many homeless people walking our streets broke and starving are VETERANS and ELDERLY who need help. it's estimated that each night about 45-60,000 Veterans are sleeping on the streets homeless. That is a crime that clearly shows the piss poor attitude of our worthless politicians toward the fine men and women who fought, sacrificed and suffered for this country that turned it's back on them, then turned back around just to kick them down further and when the politicians turn around again to ILLEGALS, they bend down and kiss ILL;EGALS BUTTS and give ILLEGALS everything they deny to our veterans and our seniors.

Our politicians say screw the vets we're going to help ILLEGALS to get better health care, food and housing here, WTF did a worthless Veteran do for us anyway? Screw em, let them die in the gutter where they belong! We gotta help ILLEGAL immigrants who come here NOT to be Americans, NOT to fit in, but here to get welfare, work off the books and take advantage of CITIZENS and LEGAL immigrants hard and tax dollars so they live fat and free

Furthermore our bridges and roads need work, but instead of taking care of the USA , we build roads and bridges in anti American foreign countries ... HOW STUPID IS THAT? who were we told the enemies were in Iraq and Afghanistan? Saddam Hussein and Osama Bin Laden, right? Who put those 2 evil rats in power? Pappy George Bush did and he also helped over throw a few other countries and put other evil men in power. This is YOUR government people TAKE IT BACK BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE. Start by securing OUR borders and voting out all incumbents and then when new parties emerge, never vote for a DemoCRAP or RATpublican again There's lots more, but it's all common sense things that politicians will NOT do, and I'm bored and tired, so ending here.
