SLO County should be providing land for homeless housing

Hope’s Village of SLO and its president Becky Jorgeson, seen here in March 2015, are working toward a goal of building a village of tiny homes like these to provide permanent homes for people who are homeless.

In reply to a recent letter in The Tribune (“SLO County can do better for its homeless population,” July 15) that said we’re not doing enough for our homeless, she is right.

We are not. For four years, Hope’s Village of SLO has been offering up their services as volunteers to build a sustainable community village for at least 50 more people who are homeless in the first village alone.

We’ve been told we’re doing good work, keep it up and bring us the land. Other communities are given taxpayers’ land on which to build villages for people who are homeless.

Why not us?

Becky Jorgeson, Santa Margarita
