Good News! An innovative program from San Francisco is changing the game with a simple idea: bring all the service providers under one roof for an all-day fair.

What an absolutely wonderful program. It's a shame more cities don't adopt it as their own.

This is great. Here in Melbourne, The Mercy Sisters provide services along these lines. I'm very impressed with what they do.

This is such a good idea and seems similar to the caregiver workshops that our city puts on every year.

This is a great idea and should be implemented everywhere. It may not end homelessness, but it sure does give these people some dignity and a sense that someone cares about them.

Wonderful news. This should be done in each city. Our homeless people need our help and compassion as well as respect.

This is indeed a great idea and should be widely imitated.

This sounds almost too good to be true. Congrats San Fransisco, on a kind and compassionate idea.

Thank-you for this informative article. What a GREAT Idea !!! Of course it would have started in Calif. ! I wish a lot more cities would adopt this model. Especially the hardest hit cities and "The Red States" where it's really needed.

I wish there were more programs like this, addressing non-flashy challenges that people who are not facing hardship would not imagine.

Great idea! There should be more days like that. In fact the service should be provided on an ongoing basis.
It's heartening to read a "good news" story.

Thanks for posting Cal... Brilliant!... I didn't think people cared about homeless people any more.
