The wording on this story is incredibly vague. Get to the point -- this is a merger that will mix senior services with homeless outreach, all under the umbrella of a religious group. Who in their right mind thinks it's OK to miss older people in our community with homeless people? That's a recipe for disaster. And our tax dollars should not be used to fund a religious-based organization.

Once again, our government taking control and telling us what is going to happen instead of putting it out for comments before a decision is made!
