When I first learned about the transitional housing project proposed for north boulder I was really excited and curious to learn more. I found on the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless site two interviews with past residents who share how hard it is to be on the streets and how relieved they were to get into the transition program. http://www.bouldershelter.org/about.residents.html I am proud to be part of a community that can address the emergency needs of the homeless, but more importantly, can try to help people get their lives back on track. The transitional housing does this and it makes sense to be near other community services. I hear the need for safety from residents in north boulder. I wonder if they have ever talked with someone trying to survive, and trying to start their life again after life happens. I know I have had tremendous support from family and friends in my life at critical times. Not everyone is so lucky. Check out the web site videos if you can’t go meet someone in person.
