A news story in Grand Junction tells a dismaying tale of the local day shelter not allowing families in during the day, despite the weather. Families need to wander around, seeking a safe, warm place to be.
Homelessness is bad enough, especially for families. But to refuse to let families into a daytime refuge is outrageous.
Please contact the mayor's office and voice your opinion. And share this with your networks. It's time to draw a line in the sand for kids who are without a place to call home.
