Homeless help

I live in Qualicum Beach and I have never seen a homeless person in my town until Tuesday of last week.

I live in Qualicum Beach and I have seen homeless people in Victoria sleeping up against buildings, but I have never seen a homeless person in my town until Tuesday of last week.

I was in a basement preparing for a function when I looked through the doors and saw sleeping bags and some hair at the top of one of them, in a corner at the bottom of the steps to the basement. I was so shocked and saddened, I had to run an errand and when I came back, the people were gone.

I was thinking that I would give them money for a hot coffee. Someone suggested they would only spend it on drugs, but I do not know that, and I don’t know how these people, maybe very young, ended up like this.

Is the Town of Qualicum Beach doing anything to help these people? I suppose that patrolling at night or early morning to look for homeless people would be something, unless there is a plan in action to help them.
