And those politicians seem to live in a dream land of immense mansions and golf courses to go into the horizon. For those of us who care about the wellbeing of each individual... and the wellbeing of the environment, there are service organizations we can participant in and/or join.The City of Austin has purchased 4 Motel/ Hotels for Homeless people and has been able to Rent Long Stay Rooms to house the ever increasing Homeless which includes many Families who have lost their jobs during the Pandemic.( Austin is heavily dependent on Service Industries that depend on Visitors that arent coming )
Our Food Bank has seen a tripling of the amount of Food they distribute weekly and a ten fold increase in eviction lawsuits filed even though they are once again temporarily stayed during the current surge of the COVID scurge!
Are we our brothers keeper? Most people supposedly think so, but some politicians and their wealthy owners dont seem to feel this way and for sure dont act that way!
The Habitat for Humanity organization does more than just build homes... it works with city planners and zoning codes to allow for affordable housing for seniors and those down on their luck.
As a member of the interfaith council in this small town, sponsored by our local Habit for Humanity, we come together with ideas and actions that bring hope for the homeless and hope for the environment.
