Where do you think is the best place for a new homeless shelter?

“I like it where it’s at. All of our resources are downtown. LINK is across the street, the Salvation Army is a couple blocks away and we have access to the bus.”
“Out on 23rd Street somewhere near Louisiana. People aren’t showing enough respect around here, the police are always coming by and this is a more dangerous area.”
“Over somewhere by Sixth and Wakarusa. Granted, that’s the rich part of town for some, but it’s a lot closer to grocery stores, gas stations and jobs.”
“There are a lot of resources and entry-level jobs over on 23rd Street. There are more restaurants, fast-food places, grocery stores and gas stations, and a lot of bus stops.”
