Hays hosting conference on homelessness in Kansas

October 19, 2010


An annual conference on homelessness will be held in Hays this week.

About 200 people are expected to attend the Kansas Statewide Homeless Coalition conference from Wednesday to Friday.

Diane Etzel-Wise, the coalition's executive director, says Hays was chosen to host the conference because homelessness exists in every part of the state.

She says a count in January 2009 found that at least 1,800 people were homeless on any given night in Kansas.

The Hays Daily News reports that speakers at the conference will include Michael German and Brian Fitzmaurice with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Why does Lawrence have 20% of the States's homeless? Well, we do know!

I'm curious as to the percentage of homeless in KS outside of Douglas, Sedgewick, Shawnee, Wyandotte and Johnson Counties. Seems to me as these are the most densely populated counties in KS, these counties are where the majority of the homeless is located.

Why would they have a conference on homelessness way out in Hays where they summarily execute the homeless?

But seriously, Wichita, Topeka or Lawrence where they actually have homeless people seem like better choices.

We could offer to trade Loring Henderson to Hays for a player to be named at a later date.
