You can see the tent. There are lots of houseless people who set up camp in the Shalawa Pt. area. The city clears them out, but then they come back. Houselessness is a major problem all up and down the West Coast. It is a terrible thing to be without a house. We have some wonderful people in the Corvallis area who are deeply committed to providing housing for all people. Unfortunately, they face monumental obstacles. Being a compassionate society is exceedingly difficult. However, I believe that it is a task from which we cannot turn away.
