Homeless Families in Kensington Want Homes, Not Shelters

Donations are pouring in for the six homeless families that are camping out in Kensington.

Donations consist of food, clothing, toys and more.

Cheri Honkala, who representes Poor People’s Human Rights Campaign, said she wants keys for the families, not just shelters.

 Protestors are calling for officials to turn abandoned properties into homes for the families.
Representative Leslie Acosta is worried about theft in the area, especially since the area is known to have high crime and isn’t lit at night, and is currently consisting of mostly women and children. One mother says her baby’s milk and food was stolen.
