We do feel it presents a very viable solution to the homeless issue. FAC Letter to Miami RE Homeless Facebook Twitter reddit 12 Comments Anonymous on September 19, 2022 at 12:47 pm Can’t some of our donations go to help former sex offenders find housing when they are released from jail? Reply FAC Contributor #3 on September 19, 2022 at 12:53 pm We have an outreach committee that has helped people with tents, clothing and other needs, but we don’t have the financial resources to spend on rent. The problem is not that these people can’t afford the housing or they don’t have family or friends who would take them in. It’s the residency restrictions that’s preventing it. Reply Jeremy on September 16, 2022 at 7:41 pm Not to mention the enormous burden that would be taken off the shoulders of the S.O. for having to process 445 transient registrations. That has got to be burdensome and expensive. With the money saved suitable housing could probably be afforded to the the homeless population that they actually care help.

God bless you all. Reply FAC Contributor #3 on September 16, 2022 at 3:04 pm By sharing it. Here’s a list of all the commissioners in Miami-Dade https://www.miamidade.gov/global/government/commission/home.page you can look for their email addresses and send them a copy of the letter. Here is another list for the City of Miami officials: https://www.miamigov.com/My-Government/City-Officials just click on their info and their emails are right there. You can send them a copy of the letter as well. It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes in total, but someone needs to do it. You can also forward it to the editorial contact for The Miami Herald, The Miami New Times, The Miami Times, Miami Today, Sun Sentinel, any of the stations listed here: https://www.stationindex.com/tv/markets/miami-ft.+lauderdale. Can anyone volunteer to do this? Please just reply to this message letting us know you will, and which list you will take care of (Miami-Dade, Miami, Newspapers, TV Stations). Hopefully we can get 4 people to volunteer. Reply Anonymous on September 17, 2022 at 11:16 am I will take the TV and newspapers. Reply FAC Contributor #3 on September 17, 2022 at 12:54 pm Thank you Anonymous!!! Does anyone want to take the City and County lawmakers? Reply Alan on September 16, 2022 at 10:32 am “Additionally, common sense dictates that a law that controls where someone sleeps between 10PM and 6AM (when schools are closed and children are generally home, sleeping) would not make children safer. ” That was the best sentence in the letter and the reason why they will not take you up on it. Common sense left politics, both parties, long ago. Have you considered sending that to the editor at the Miami Herald as an opinion piece to see if they will print it. Reply FAC Contributor #3 on September 16, 2022 at 10:50 am They were cc’ed. Alan, if you’d like to help, you can share it with other publications in Florida. Can you spearhead that project? Reply DavidM on September 15, 2022 at 7:16 pm Excellent. Let us know if you get a response. Reply Dennis on September 15, 2022 at 6:37 pm What if every one of us printed out all 15 pages and mailed them to Suarez? I’m going to. Reply JJJJ on September 15, 2022 at 5:32 pm Hear Hear!! An excellent letter full of common sense and truth! … I bet they ignore it 🙁 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Comment Policy PLEASE READ: Comments not adhering to this policy will be removed.
