I once caught a homeless farmer planting his chickens in the park. I explained to him that approach would never work. The next day I visited the park, and much to my surprise, the amount of chickens running around the park had grown ten fold. I saw that the homeless farmer had butchered one of the chickens and grilled it over an open flame. He gave me a piece of the chicken and I ate it. It tasted delicious. I asked the homeless farmer his name - his response still haunts me. He replied "my name is Colonel Sanders".

Well, GOOD NEWS! The city of Anaheim and charities have been helping the homeless people at La Palma Park, I never see homeless people at La Palma Park anymore, the homeless people are now being helped. God bless the city of Anaheim, and may God bless all of the good people who are helping the homeless people.
I was also told that there is a whole apartment complex on Pauline that is now being used as housing for homeless people.
Anaheim must have wonderful Karma for all of the good things that the people of Anaheim do to help other people.
I am very proud of Anaheim.
All of the best,

Tony I have been feeding and clothing the homeless in La Palma Park for some time now and would just like to know when has there been one day that you havent seen homeless at that park? The only time they arent there is when they are kicked out for an event at the park.

Here is something from the Antonovich Newsletter in L.A. County...

TO ADDRESS HOMELESSNESS, LOS ANGELES COUNTY BREAKS GROUND
ON HOUSING-TREATMENT FACILITY IN SUNLAND

On January 14, Supervisor Antonovich along with community leaders and residents broke ground in the Los Angeles County Family Housing’s Day Street Apartment Complex in Sunland.

LA Family Housing will not only provide housing but include vital supportive services including, on-site, case management, housing counseling and placement, financial literacy, computer and vocational training, adult life skills, drug and alcohol counseling, and most importantly, mental health services.

The total cost just over 15 million dollars includes a Los Angeles County 5th District Homeless Grant of $1.2 million and Antonovich’s office providing a $150,000 predevelopment grant.

The 46 units at the day street apartments will consist of 23 units designated for the chronically homeless with mental illness, 14 units for couples, and 8 units for low income individuals. The facility has a large community room, several meeting rooms, laundry facilities, a courtyard with outdoor seating, and a barbeque area.

“The most effective way to address homelessness is to have the full support and participation of the local community,” said Supervisor Antonovich.“Facilities like this will provide vital wraparound services -- the most important of which is mental healthcare.”

A good private investigator could find him.

I have a friend who ran a few men's homes, for mentally ill men who were homeless, and people used to donate food for the men, restaurants donated food, and grocery stores donated food, etc, and my friend used to cook and serve steak and lobster to the homeless men on occasion. He always thought that it was great that he was able to serve steak and lobster to the homeless men.

I remember this park I spent two and a half years at la palma park haha I had a little fort set up over by the stadium, good times! This was back in 1990 but yah those days were crazy man, there was alot of gang shootings and heroin was big in that area and boy did they have some good heroin going around back in those days! Pearson park down the street was also happening back then,I used to score the best weed over there but those days are over from what I know. They cleaned up pearson park pretty good, tore down the famous handball courts and locked up all the drug dealers,it sucked! There wasn't any homeless people over at pearson maybe one or two till the park rangers would kick them out. All the homeless people were at la palma park for some reason? I miss anaheim, I haven't been back since 1999 went to prison for a couple years and got out to see everything has changed. I couldn't handle it so I jumped on a train and ended up in texas hah I'm still bumming it but the white folks over here take care of us pretty good.

I do not know, I have lived in Anaheim since 2002.

By the way, I just found out that another friend is volunteering to drive around in a van picking up homeless people and taking them to shelters to help them. There are some really great people in Orange County who do a lot to help other people who are less fortunate.

There are many ways that we can help the people who are homeless and hungry, we can, and we must, help our own people here in the USA.

The CCC needs to be brought back...

There needs to be a way that people who are homeless and hungry can work in order to get food and shelter, and a small check for cigarettes and clothes, or whatever. People can plant trees in our forests, etc, etc, etc.

The worst thing in the world is being homeless and hungry, and with the bad economy there are a lot of people who are homeless and hungry, there needs to be places where they can go work in exchange for food and shelter.

Salute,

Tony V.
