  1. Heck no. That apartment complex is very nice, clean and FULL of children and families where kids are outside 24/7. They get enough tweakers in their trashes (one even broke into a home) and they are tired of it!!! PLEASE for the sake of everyone, do not turn this into a homeless shelter.

  2. I agree with Kate. Some of these homeless men are very dangerous. I walk every day past that building and see the homeless hanging around. One man showed his gun on his pants when I mentioned he could not beg at Starbucks. They use cell phones and talk to each other and defy the laws when told not to beg for money from cars. We don’t want them anywhere near the apartments or our homes.

  3. And if that doesn’t work out the city could sell the property to one of the staff or councillors for another nightclub.

  4. Our lovely town has no sidewalks down to the beach, along the HWY from Holmes Rd to Walgreens. We were suppose to get them, city spent money paying the city to mark the streets with white chalk. Took them two days. Then it rained, washed the chalk and no sidewalks for tourists or homeowners. But, the city has money to run a drug rehab place.??? Didn’t tell us how much that will cost. Too dangerous and not proper to be so close to homes, apts, children, etc. How about building one near the Hospital? No mention of this in Newsguard.

  5. It seems to me that Helping Hands has a criteria for their transition and I’m most certain its not for your run of the mill tweakers with the alleged guns sliding down their pants …
    Lol

  6. WoW! Must be a bunch of trumplets posting here. First of all STFU with all the speculation. most of you have no idea what you’re talking about. Not just anyone will be allowed to stay there. Any person that rents property thats Federally funded like HUD or Public housing has to go through a law enforcement back ground check. You are ineligible if you been convicted of domestic abuse, Drug manufactoring or crimes of violence. Y’all need to get your heads out your behinds! Quite being part of the problem. Start being a part of the solution! Get informed. Please stop the ignorance.
