Kevin Rosebrook, VP of Homeless Services at City Gospel Missions recommends this helpful article from this morning's Enquirer. The article lays out several real life stories of individuals in Cincinnati who panhandle. It also gives great insight from a couple street outreach workers who attempt to get some of the homeless downtown into local resources. Chico Lockhart, referenced in the article, calls Kevin regularly to get men into CGM's shelter. Chico says in the article, "The real battle isn't in getting services. . . it's persuading people to take advantage of them" You can read the Enquirer article HERE.
