The Homeless Voice has learned a lot about COVID-19 and testing. So what do we do next with our medical outreach? A lot of homeless people die of things when they can be tested and treated on the spot. There is no reason to die. However, getting a homeless person to an ER or urgent care can become very difficult to do so. So what do we do, we will bring the testing to them. So we are now upgrading our medical outreach. I can’t tell you how many homeless people I know who have died from a UTI, ( Urinary Tract Infection), they simply have an infection and it goes untreated and they become septic. The nice part about this testing is, most of it is rapid … Read More »
Vaccines work, the COVID-19 vaccines work, and not only do they work, they work extremely well. We all should know by now, that just because you get the vaccines doesn’t mean you won’t catch the virus. It does not mean you won’t get a little sick. It does not mean you can’t die. What it means is, that there is just a very small chance you will get sick or die from COVID-19 if you catch it after you were fully vaccinated. Basically, the vaccines work great against serious illness or death. When some people catch the virus after vaccines, that is what we call Breakthrough infections. This little piece I am writing about was not written until now. I did not want to … Read More »
The COSAC Foundation and the Homeless Voice is requesting people to send oxygen tubes to their Florida office. People who have sleep apnea and COPD usually have extra oxygen tubing laying around the home that is brand new. In the past, many people who have cleaned out their parent’s homes after the death of their loved ones, have thrown away many extra oxygen tubing. Sean Cononie, the volunteer Director stated ” I know when my dad died I found over 40 tubes that were still brand new.” Please look into the items you have at home and send them to us so we can get them to California. Cononie, added ” We need to do this today not tomorrow” You can even go to your local medical supplies store and buy a few tubes, they cost about $2.00 per tube.We … Read More »
Do We Really Want Homeless Sex Offenders Living Under Bridges?
For almost a decade and a half homeless advocates like myself has warned cities and lawmakers that the sex offenders laws they are establishing to make it safer for our children will, in fact, make it less safe in the future. We said in the future these laws will create homeless sex offenders where no one will be able to monitor their whereabouts. Be careful what you wish for was the words of wisdom we gave lawmakers. Instead of even researching our statements they just kept on making the law so strict that it was and is almost impossible for a sex offender to live anywhere. We were told we were just too compassionate and had no concerns for the safety of children and when I started to take sex offenders at my facility I was … Read More »
Can a Person Die Because They Don’t Have Health Insurance ? Yes they can
This is not about President Trump so please do not think this is a political post. It may have some bleeding heart liberal emotions stuff in it , that I cannot help for God made me and this is how I feel. Do people die because of lack of health insurance? Yes they do. I have seen it for the last 25 years. My last example just happen a few days ago. The good news is he did not die this week but he would have died very soon with a chest (lungs) full of blood clots. The 43 year old male sounded like the big bad wolf who could not blow the house … Read More »
I usually don’t allow others to write for my blog. At times I will repost work from another news source and then make comments. However with this story a person by the name of Mr. Torran King wrote this and sent it in to the Homeless Voice to be printed in our newspaper. When I read it , I said to myself , ” this guy knows his stuff ” It is just so truthful.
Good Job Mr. King . A job well done.

Harold Albert served his country in Korea. He was a good man , a nice man, never smoked or drank he just could not find his way in society. He did find his way to the National Cemetery in Bushnell Florida where we received his flag for his service. It was just a total heart felt inner feeling when the army personnel said on behalf of the President of the United States of America. He was a homeless person , a person that cities reject and make laws that reject homeless people and the President is giving us a flag for his great service.. What is wrong with this world. Shame on you , all of you who dislike the Homeless. Many of them protected your rights, your space and … Read More »
Dear Mr President Elect Trump:
I am a democrat one that has financially supported Mrs. Clinton in the past. You are now our President and I like many will support you. Everyone must admit you ran a very intelligent campaign and you will go down as being one of the smartest political campaigners in modern history. You ran your campaign as any good CEO would, it was cost effective and very effective. If you run our country this way and cut down on some of the other promises you said you were going to do that made many people upset you may just make America Great Again.
I am writing this letter to you because I know I will get an answer. Some thirty years ago I sent you a letter via the Trump Organization about … Read More »
The Truth of the Matter
As you all know I am a pretty big Democrat. I have toyed with the idea of voting for Trump but for now it is HRC. Heck I even paid to fly Mrs Clinton down for a conference at the Diplomat Hotel in Hollywood a few years back. But here is what I hate. Lets look at the latest attacks on the Donald. But before I get started, a great person once said . Do you know the difference of people in prison and people who are not. Well most people said they committed crimes. The real answer should be they got caught and you or me did not get caught. Like the Bible says . ” All people commit sin” we all are sinners not one if perfect except Jesus. The same thing applies to crime. We all commit crimes and only a small percentage gets caught and are sent to … Read More »

For the people of Orlando
Mr Shooter You’re Not Welcomed Here
Goodbye to you my prideful friends
We’ve danced and partied until the end
Together dropped to the floor on our knees
Learned to hide from his eyes
prayed to God we would not die
Goodbye my friends I’m next to die
just when I thought that I would survive
I see him looking everywhere
Oh my God I’m in his stare
Please wake me up from this nightmare
We had pride and now … Read More »
