Hollywood CA: Professional Help For The Homeless

In daily outings, I encounter more and more homeless wanderers. My walks are along West Hollywood’s busy Santa Monica Boulevard, the final miles of Route 66 before it ends at the beaches. Many tourists stroll the same streets, including the famed Hollywood Walk of Fame, and see similar sad sights.

Many street people have drinking, drug and/or mental problems. The inclination of kind-hearted people is to give them money. Actually, you’d be doing them much more good by contributing those dollars instead to agencies established to provide professional help and shelter for the unfortunates. Consider the Red Cross, Salvation Army, PATH and other qualified organizations.
