The homeless in our own country

I found this picture via my friend Chris Highland’s Marin Shelter website in Marin County, California. Chris is the director of Marin County’s shelter for the homeless. His January post on the Marin Shelter website led me to the picture and article about the "Adopt a Meter" program where businesses in a city can donate money to have old parking meters refurbished "and install them in areas with a high volume of pedestrians. Money deposited in the meters will be given to the city’s homeless outreach programs. Sponsoring companies will have their logo prominently displayed on the decorated meters." The "Adopt a Meter" program is already going on in Nashville and Denver. For more information on the program, visit:
