In a recent Turlock City Council meeting, it was stated that after next year the city would not be involved in providing a shelter for the homeless. If this course is followed, the city would be penny-wise and pound-foolish.
- The faith shelters will not accommodate even half of Turlock's estimated 300 homeless. Many homeless will not go to a shelter with a religious requirement.
Turlock must speed its efforts to provide shelter for the homeless. San Francisco, Fresno, Merced and other cities are doing the same.
