“I’d spend many nights opening up the local hall at a church or a synagogue, helping homeless people, putting out cots, staying overnight with them, dealing with the occasional hostile situation, then closing up,” Santana said.

As rewarding as the work was, he saw that it had no permanent effects.

“We weren't helping end homelessness,” he said. “We were keeping them alive during the coldest time of the year. That’s an important thing to do, but that doesn’t end homelessness and results in seeing the same people year after year.”

This sounds like the situation in Kalamazoo. While the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission and others provide food and shelter, they do not solve the problem. Any efforts to change the situation would meet resistance from them, interrupting their gravy train.
