Morning Report: Cleanup Program Gave Homeless Residents Something Rare — Hope

A pilot project was sparked by a question from a homeless resident about why the city couldn’t make it easier for San Diegan’s homeless people to clean up after they became more.

For the past four months, homeless residents have gathered on the border of East Village and Barrio Logan twice a week to pick up trash as part of a pilot called the Triangle Project, which calls for a triangle-shaped area they focus on what is limited by. National Avenue and 16th and Commercial streets.

As the voice of San Diego’s Lisa Halverstadt and contributor Peggy Peattie reportvolunteers handed out heavy garbage bags, donated a trash can and gave homeless residents $ 2 for each bag they collected.

As the pilot ended last Thursday, homeless residents said Halverstadt and Peattie the project gave them both extra money and a sense of purpose and community.

Organizers Brian Trotier and the Lucky Duck Foundation, which helped fund the pilot to test the idea, now expect another group to rise to lead the effort for long.

This is not the first time San Diego has been a haven for women

Decades before Roe vs. Wade, San Diego was the last resort for many pregnant women.

Voice contributor Randy Dotinga reported that women in the 1930s sought abortion in underground clinics that dotted the city, including one linking an infamous abortion union that covered the entire West Coast.

These women shared two things in common: despair and a willingness to take great risks, she writes.

It took a global pandemic and the Great Resignation but now we’re starting to wonder: What if teachers want … money ?!

Following San Diego Unified’s announcement that they would offer signature bonuses for certain jobs, your VOSD podcast host discussed how cash might encourage local educators to serve in roles and schools where they are most needed.

Encouraging teachers financially was once taboo. But with this option on the table, we consider what other systemic school problems could be solved with money.
