Niccole Harris started this petition to Mason County Kentucky City officials

We believe gathering names of people in favor of a homeless shelter will gain the attention of the City of Maysville and the Buffalo Trace area. 

This year a homeless camp was burnt with no ulterior places for these individuals to go. Afterwards many tents were taken down as the homeless were out of their tents. We were told there are no places to put tents up within the city limits. Meaning there are tons of people without a place to lay their head at night peacefully without the fear that someone is going to take the only items they have. Or even have those items burnt to the ground. 

We have been meeting with many different people since the burning of the tent. We have had a few city officials meet, We have teamed up with the welcome house here in Maysville to get a better perspective on how many homeless we have. That number would surprise you. We have also met with our state representative Mr William Lawrence. He is all in for helping us obtain this goal.We I've also all agreed that River Outreach is not a homeless shelter but a Christ centered rehabilitation church. We are not trying to create chaos only collect names to show the residents that are in favor of having a place for fellow neighbors without homes to go instead of passing them downtown on the East end like we all have. There are many different kinds of homeless people. They range from mental illness, to veterans coming home with nothing, to families who have had many life blows that just can't keep their head above water. Please join us in signing this petition so that we can be one step closer in caring for all of our neighbors and not letting anyone be left behind.
