Why do you think that Morgantown is so classy that there shouldn't be any homeless........

Pity this poor man .......

Saw him in Elverson and his artwork that he is selling is really beautiful.

Well, I've had my eyes opened about this homeless guy. He's living in the Red Roof motel and every few days he goes into beer distributor and buys a case of beer. He pulls out a wad of cash that would choke a horse according to witnesses. He is a Vietnam vet so that tells me he's eligible for VA benefits and probably gets a check from them.

Sounds like he's just a street beggar .......

I'm only 20 years old and have had a mental disorder my whole life. Too often i've been denied any help from strangers who call me a begger. Due to debt, a car accdent, and no help from family (who aren't in the position to help), I'm homeless. Some people will walk by and laugh when I ask for anything. Some people don't even make a sound, some don't even bother to look.

When someone is in need, they ask. Those who deny someone who had the courage to ask,(although the fear of denial) are only letting God down. Help those in need. Although I have seen people abusing the rights of homeless shelters with social security benefits and other state checks, there are people who you should consider a "catch 22". I'm in that boat, and sinking. Praying everyday for help from God through considerate people.

My boyfriend and I have applied at 40 some odd organizations for a job, applied for schools, and financial aid. In three months, we've waited with no replies. Persistance being our only option. In our car accident recently, on third street in town, we flipped the jeep hitting a guide wire and tipping over. We lost our wallets and now have no ID, sscards or birth certificates.

Be kind to those in need. God will over see and return to you 10 fold.
Try to understand, and consider what you are asked of and don't Need. You'll never know what's in store for you if you open your heart to those more in need than you.

Very sorry for your troubles but the comments made here were for the "phony" beggar if you read the former posts.

I saw this man last summer walking up 322 towards Honey Brook. I asked my husband to go in his truck and ask him if he wanted a hot shower and a hot meal because he looked like he had been pushing that cart up hill all day. When my husband found him and asked him if he would like to put his cart in the back of the truck and get cleaned up and get a shower, the man replied that the longer he is off the street, the more money he is losing. My husband said he is dressed in clean polo clothes & clean cut. I'm not one to judge but I would have thought that he would have taken the offer if he was in that bad of shape.

He's not in that bad a shape. Vet getting check. And uses it to by cases of beer. He probably belongs in a vet hospital getting mental health counseling.

The leasT of Honey Brook or Morgantown's problem is one man who seems to mind his own business. Geez live and let live. If He is indeed a Vietnam Vet then shame on all of you. There are thousands of vietnam vets that the government didn't properly "take care of" and it is a disgrace. The things these men saw must have been pretty traumatic and then to come home and be ignored. I imagine there are many mentally ill that have no one to guide them toward a VA for medical assistance or they are so sick and traumatized they think the way they are living is fine. And shame on your comments about his "wads of cash" and designer clothes. He deserves every penny he receives and it's nobody's business how they choose to spend it.
SUCH DISREPECT....DISCUSTING
Let's talk about the homeless guy instead of focusing on the amoung of HEROIN in this town and the fact that it's now the "in" thing to do at TVHS. At least once a week there's an obit for a young adult or teenager dying of an overdose in the surrounding towns. I just thank God that my kids are out of that school and out of this area. I don't think most people know how bad it is.

He doesn't mind his own business.....he ask for money from people who stop and asks them to buy his paintings. Walking on public roads asking for handouts is not minding your own business.

I agree it IS a disgrace of how our government ignores our vets. The same government that gives them checks and then washes their hands of them...very sad!!

For the kids dying (so you say weekly) of heroine overdose where are the parents?????? Enabling them ? Or in a state of denial?

So happy for you now that you are moved out of the area.(sarscasm)...yup move rather than try to solve the problems by getting involved.
