People watch your neighborhoods I just heard that there is a shelter being put in Braidwood. They got government approval and are choosing a location. Don't let this happen they will bring all the Dope heads and Gang members out of Joliet, Kankakee and other big towns. This will cause property values to plunge. Call city hall now stop this before it happens.WE DON'T WANT THIS CRAP HERE AND DON'T NEED IT HEAR PLEASE CALL THE MAYOR TODAY STOP THIS GARABAGE FROM COMING TO OUR TOWN.

Ok, I know that of all the bleeding heart liberals are going to want a piece of me for this, but who cares, here goes. A homeless shelter is a bad idea in Braidwood. It makes no sense at all. Explain to me how this is going to work. These people are going to need to go to the financial aid office, they're going to need to go to the WIC office, some might need to go to the unemployment office. If they need to go to the hospital, or look for a job they would be much better off further north. You put them out here in Podunk town and it will become very difficult for them to get out of the situation they are in. Can someone please explain to me how this makes sense????

I thin the local heroin dealer has killed off his customer base and came up with a brilliant idea to expand his market!

I totally agree with Happy Dad. He points are spot on and were the first problems that came to mind for me. Homeless shelters in Joliet are set up for sleeping. They do NOT let their visitors stay during the day. They have strict hours. Even in the winter they have to leave to work or go to a warming center. This is a horrible idea especially if they are going to follow the same model as other shelters. Can you imagine what they would do during the day in our small community? There are people who live in shelters that have cars and jobs. But that is not the norm. I wonder if they have more of a half way house in mind. Those are popping up all over the tri county area. That would be even worse. We would be much better served with an outreach program that provides resources for addiction, counseling and teaching skills for finding employment for those in need. I can't see this going through without a big fight from our residents.

U will more likely than not see all the upper crusties goin there for free meals and services. There is a cloths closet in coal city and u should see the kinds of vehicles that line up there to grab free clothes. Cadillacs, suvs, sports cars, ect. Its like i never see a beater with rust on it there. Same for the food pantries. U got ppl going to these food pantries that go out to lonestar and blow 100$ on dinner. Its just crazy. I seriously doubt u will see a bunch of real homeless ppl leaving joliet or kankakee to go to braidwood. City ppl cant stand that boring ass town.

Read the thread! The people who are trying to put the shelter in Braidwood are the ones asking the city for free land. and the Lutheran church that is closing. They want to use the empty church. And build on the empty land the city just bought.

Ok, and this information came from the restaurant? You see, we can only believe 30% of what we read to be factual. The rest is opinion and debate. I read the thread. There has also been reports in Topix that the area is getting a Jewel Osco and too many other things to list. All rumors that came from hearsay. In a restaurant or a beauty shop or a bar .

lol very true. I'm sorry I'm still confused @be informed. I know what the thread is about but I didn't understand what you was trying to say. Ok I understand half now... I think.... Allegedly Braidwood is being asked to donate the newly bought property to the homeless shelter. Am I right so far? And about the church. Is this church connected with this property somehow? I never heard of a church going out of business.

The Church is suppose to be dissolving in Braidwood they are closing the doors. Churches every day close for lack of fund to support them and or lack of followers, Get out a go to church you might learn a few more things than hiding behind your computer.

Hahaha! Now you are really cracking me up. Ok Be Informed! First thing tomorrow I will go to the greasy restaurant in Braidwood and listen for gossip about the homeless shelter and then I will head over to my church and ask the pastor about it. And then I will say a prayer that your grammar improves.

I know I shouldn't tell my secrets but I am trying to help you not look like a imbecile. Too late I'm afraid. But here goes. I don't own a computer anymore. At least not one I sit behind. I have a laptop that I rarely use. A Samsung tablet that is amazing and a Samsung galaxy s5. There's an app for topix that I have on my phone and tablet. They even have the same app for iPhone. Anyway, I can be on topix and Facebook and Twitter and Instagram which I hate but I'm on to monitor my teenagers but all if these 24 hours a day. No matter where I go. Even church. Welcome to the 21st century.

Also you still didn't explain how the church building is connected to the desired property. I'm just trying to make sense of your far fetched tall tail.

Do you know where the Church building is? Do you know where the vacant land is? They are is two different locations. They are not related by locations Now go all the way back to the first post. It tells the people to watch their neighborhoods. This propose shelter is going to be located in more than one location, so they are telling people from the church. They want multiple locations. Do you want them in your neighborhood? This is not a far fetched tall I was able to get their name check it out with the IRS, Safe Harbor Social and Community Service Agency. You wont be calling it a tail when they move next to you.

oyavoy. You're amazing. I read the first post and I was the second post. My post was coherent and understandable. You posted a lot of information that didn't make sense. So I wanted clarification. Thank you for finally clearing it up for us. However it's not true. Either you heard wrong or somebody is just blowing smoke. It's speculative at best.
wow

That is the most intelligent adult comment by Shasta I've ever seen . And most importantly it actually made sense. They must have finally got the help/rehab to make such an understood statement. Congrats I'm truly shocked . I guess miracles can happen lol

Whats not true that they not coming here with the shelter. Your wrong the IRS documents our public. All you need to do is call the IRS I did. I was able to get information, call 1-877-829-5500.or if you know someone in the Catholic church here in Braidwood they seem to be behind this. Ask them for the paperwork they have to give it to the public for viewing its called public record ask for According to what I was told by the IRS they became a organization in Feb of this year. Its for real folks

Wow! All I can do is laugh! I am reading your post over and over trying to make sense. I am going to check out this organization, but not through the IRS! Weird route to take. First it's the Lutheran Church, now it's the Catholic church. You see, your grammar skills are so bad it takes a couple of read throughs to even begin to make sense out of it. My goodness, you are researching an organization and want to prove your point. I get that. I am interested but definitely not convinced by the information here. To be continued.
