Should the proposed Salvation Army and Community shelter and community center also be used as a halfway house?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on May 25, 2005
“I think it should be. People might be upset about it, but they need a place to live, too.”
“No. I don’t think that’s a good idea. It infringes upon the civil rights of the homeless.”
“I think that is a good idea. If you are going to address an issue such as rehabilitation, you have to address the problems that are causing people to need it. It’s easy to ignore it, but that is a destructive way to look at it.”
“As a resident of that area, I really don’t like the idea of it being used as a halfway house, especially having children living with me.”
