Regarding homeless camps: Help usually arrives with a clean sweep of the area. Where do the homeless go? Somewhere else only to start again. God created all of us equal and he loves all of us. The drugs, etc., need to be addressed, but the living conditions need to be addressed first. The road to hell is wide and the road to heaven narrow. The right choice takes effort, discipline, patience and love. We are all in this together whether we want to admit it or not. Here is a way to start: a gigantic prayer session of all denominations. Prayers work wonders and God hears all prayers.
