McKinney City Council is currently considering taking a room used to preserve and review our precious historical archives, out of the Roy and Helen Hall Library in downtown McKinney, and replacing it with a homeless resource center.

Numerous scientific studies show that poor and homeless people are most likely to improve their condition when they are in the company of affluent people, and current census data shows that east McKinney has very, very few affluent people. Because of this, and in conjunction with the bond approved by McKinney voters in May of 201 by McKinney voters, the location which offer the most economically feasible plan and best hope for successful integration with affluent residents - would be to include it with the expansion of the John and Judy Gay Library in west McKinney. Doing so should also include the addition of permanent showers and short term sleeping facilities for area homeless people, plus the location is ideally situated in walking distance to job low skill job opportunities, not to mention that our economically-able library visitors to the west always have extra room in their vehicles, which the homeless can now share to get around town swiftly.

If you care about social justice, if you care about humanity, if you care about our great city of McKinney, then the best thing you can do for your self and your family is to support locating the new homeless resource center at the John and Judy Gay Library.
