The term vagrant means a person without a settled home or regular work who wanders from place to place and lives by begging. Similarly homeless is defined as “without a home or without permanent housing.” Such meanings and definitions suffice to support the idea of constructing a building as a home to house and care for such persons in our community, Waipahu. This is an important idea. You and I can do this for these homeless brothers and sisters of ours.
The idea to invest in constructing a community shelter and utilize it for housing and caring for local vagrants is at the heart of our democracy because this is the government of the people by the people for the people. Constructing a facility here in Waipahu provides an opportunity for our homeless brothers and sisters to call it home. On the other hand, it also provides an opportunity for families and organizations in Waipahu to participate in caring for our homeless community. Therefore, we must build a home that is furnished with programs aims to deliver caring, learning, teaching, and awarding to the vagrants.
Subsequently, different programs are to be developed for caring, learning, teaching, and awarding to the vagrants. Even though the number of homeless persons in Waipahu is small the level of its visibility in certain locations seemed to be a concern to some residents. These homeless people are part of our community and they need our help.
To ensure developed programs are functioning effectively and efficiently volunteers from non-profit organizations and family members who live within the community are to be involved in the management and operational team. Also, medical professionals, social workers, and law enforcement officers are to be involved daily to ensure vagrants are being observed, protected, and cared for in all aspects. Those who are volunteering and participating are to be incentivized and tax exempted.
These homeless brothers and sisters are to be educated and introduce to selective employment. Medical professionals, social workers, and law enforcement officers can educate the vagrants. However, creating a new task force in the workforce with qualified and passionate men and women to educate these vagrants could make a difference in the desired outcome. Vagrants who complete training and receive certification are to be rewarded with new jobs and employment. Also, these homeless brothers and sisters are to be rewarded and recognized as a way to empower a sense of accomplishment and change.
