Moses Lake has a lot of services for the homeless

Print Article

Iím thankful for the encouraging words from James Earl Jones about the Catholicsí ministry to Moses Lakeís homeless. But it doesnít help anyone that he ignored Serve Moses Lake, at 422 W. Third. Serve is a Christian ministry of volunteers where area churches contribute to help people in need. Serve works with Grant County Integrated Services, Grant County Housing Authority, the Salvation Army, New Hope, Crossroads, the Prosperity Center, OIC, PUDís share the warmth, Aging and Adult Services and, oh yes, two women who make 30 to 40 sack lunches four days a week.

James, if you overlooked what people of this area are doing to help those in need, why donít you write again to thank the volunteers and direct the needy to where some help can also be found.

Statistically Moses Lake has no corner on the homeless problem. There are 58,936 homeless in Los Angeles County, up 12 percent from 2018. Drug guru Timothy Leary recommended, ďtune in, turn on, and drop out.Ē Tens of thousands took his advice. Perhaps we need a different message. Jesus was asked ďwho is my neighbor?Ē Many in our town are seeking to answer that question. Me? Sometimes l donít want to know.
