Article on homeless men in The Record 3/29/16

Monsy Alvarado, staff writer for the RECORD, published an excellent article in today’s edition (March 29, 2016) of the paper, detailing the experiences of some of the workers in Palisades Park who have been homeless through the bitter weather of the winter.  She also features our Social Services coordinator, Angelica Martinez, who has helped CoFiA collect and deliver blankets, coats, and sleeping bags for the men.  They are also welcome guests at our Monday lunch program.

But it is so, so sad that in this land of plenty people have to face such misery.  There must be a better way to help people who have come here only to try to work and support families who are in even more desperate straits at home.
