Joshua, 1977-

“They have two stadiums one next to each other, and if you work there, they allow people to camp right off the property edges. You can work for the games, then have your tent safe, away from the street.”

If you are homeless, Seattle is a great place to go. There are many soup kitchens that are good, which don’t feed you decomposting food. I won’t go to soup kitchens anymore, but in Seattle I do. Berkeley used to have good ones, but not anymore.

Seattle also has a homeless-to-work program, giving homeless people municipal jobs. They have two stadiums one next to each other, and if you work there, they allow people to camp right off the property edges. You can work for the games, then have your tent safe, away from the street. Or you can work cleaning the wharfs or city streets, and get room and board for it.
