El Segundo, CA

#1 Aug 23, 2010
"Now, neighbors in this tight-knit community have returned to relying on each other to help those in need of shelter services, with some remaking their homes into makeshift safe houses.

Gwen Durling, a spokeswoman for the California Emergency Management Agency, which oversees the shelter program, said even though the state budget was creating a problem for victim-services agencies, they have still found a way to provide their core services.

But some local advocates, safe-house providers and law-enforcement officials said the private homes are less safe than shelters because fewer people entails a greater risk. They also say the services for victims are less robust and immediate than they would be if trained staff were on hand."

May be less, but bless those friends and neighbors for doing SOMETHING! KUDOS to them!
