thank you for your comment. if it were not for my sister I would be homeless in arkansas. so she brought me out here to Cali. well I cant get work out here because I am gay and look the part without trying so no one will hire me. I feel bad about my sister taking care of me. I know how it feels to be homeless been there many times. God bless you.

The homeless are not getting the help they need. However, the organization are getting rich off of homeless. If the greety religious grps would do what the Holy saids to the money is to go to the poor and to teach to be successful when investing the monies recieved but this is not happening. The wealthy control everything even the tythe of the churches.

Hi Sheila, I couldn't care less how you look or if you are gay. My sister has been homeless and now lives in a shelter in Pasadena. Sheila, even if you volunteer somewhere you may gain some confidence and get a job, even a parttime one. Life is so short. You have a kind face and I bet can offer much to society. Please don't give up. You deserve a life of your own, as does your sister. As far as the wealthy taking everything, I don't agree, although there are many thieves out there. Please monrovians don't freak out but I think we do need a shelter in monrovia.

I agree to this shelter idea. Add education to the shelter along with other helpful programs we as a community can help get Monrovia back to work.
