TKC MUST READ!!! OLATHE CRACKDOWN ON HOMELESS SHELTER BEFORE UPCOMING POLAR VORTEX!!!
Homelessness is a growing problem in the suburbs and here's a glimpse at a growing debate betwixt city officials vs. volunteers hoping to provide shelter to the less fortunate.
Read the post on their FB for more info but here are the basics:
10❤️20 CRY FOR HELP
As most of you know, we purchased the building at 725 W. Park St. Olathe Ks. 66061. This is to be the permanent home for Project 10❤️20, a shelter for adults who are homeless.
BEFORE & AFTER purchasing the property, the City Of Olathe gave us written conformation that our shelter could operate at this location. Much to our surprise...the city has put our whole project on hold! Meanwhile we are working night and day in a temporary location, hosting 40-45 people per night.
We need ALL of you to please contact the City Of Olathe Planning Dept. Let them know that the people of Johnson County feel Project 10❤️20 should have a permanent home in Olathe.
Most people aren’t aware that if you are an adult without minor children, there is ABSOLUTELY no where to go for shelter in Johnson County, except for Project 10❤️20.
I would like nothing more than for the City Of Olathe to be overwhelmed with support for people experiencing homelessness in Johnson County and Project 10❤️20.
People are more apt to send a negative comment before a positive. PLEASE HELP US, WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
