It has been decided that we are going to put together a camp for the Homeless Youth here in San Diego, California as a test project. Following this many more can be set-up around the country.
There is much government controlled land that we can lease for something like $1.00 a year. As well corporations and organizations can donate everything needed to make these camps self contained. And they gain tax write-offs and publicity.
I have discussed this with several of our homeless kids today and they are 100% behind it. In fact they have already named it, you can guess the name.
I made several telephone calls today on this, again we have total support from a wide variety of city, county and state agencies.
I believe that we can have our first camp up and running within six months.
And yes I thought of it, it makes a lot of sense and can be easily accomplished.
Now my job is to put together a consortium of people and organizations and make it happen.
We are moving forward with this project and I am asking our IYN Members to make a one time donation for this project of $12.00, a dollar a month to cover initial expenses.
