I started marketing again before sunrise, but my mind kept going onto one topic. The word "homeless." It's a strange word and it brings unbelievably strange reactions. Follow @DeniseBundy
This is what I have learned in the past four years.
If you tell a stranger that you are homeless don't have any illusions that they will be your friend.
Even if you explain that you are homeless because you cannot afford to provide for a convicted felon and yourself - that will make little difference. Somehow a "worthy person" should be able to pull a few hundred thousand dollars out of a magic hat.
The recession, economic collapses ~ all of these factors do not exist for a homeless person. It's a strange reality that we face.
But the advocates and philanthropists see everything so much differently. Within them you suddenly see a community with bonds so strong that you realize how much different this world would be if society was made with the same compassion, acceptance and lack of judgement.
To serve. You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love. -Martin Luther King
Can anybody help them?Today was a beautiful day even though it was bitter cold. Not the most productive day, but a good day. I feel privileged to have met so many outstanding humane beings in this strange homeless walk.
Can You Hear My Cry,
When you wander by.
Can Anyone Give Them a Home?
Somewhere they could Call Their Own.
Somewhere Secure and Safe
No, not “just”! Housing First programs help end homelessness by recognizing that the primary problem of homeless people isn’t a moral failing, bad habits or weakness—it’s lack of housing! This realistic, non-judgmental approach places people in stable housing and then addresses other issues more effectively. What’s more, did you know it’s actually cheaper to house chronically homeless people than it is to take care of them on the street? It’s true. While chronically homeless individuals can cost upwards of $60,000 a year in emergency room costs, jail stays and other unnecessary expenses, stable lives in permanent housing can cost less than half of that. It’s a compassionate solution to homelessness, but what’s more, it makes sense money-wise.
There has to be someone related to Robert & Sylve Huckins must have some means to reach them, if it be Michael Huckins, Dr.Kenneth Ogilvie ( Diana Huckins? Dominic Huckins? Malcolm Huckins? ) or Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins and get them to return ALL of the money they stole from us so that I can buy a home and get our lives back. I am begging anyone in this family for help.
I don't believe I have EVER witnessed any none violent crime that can be as devastating as stealing someone's home. I am walking in Dorothy McKeevers footsteps, day by day, month by month, year by year.
Liam Griffin, I sat in your law office with two witnesses as you gave me your promise, your guarantee, that our money would be returned before harm came to us.
Patricia Ogilvie-Huckins you were present the day I signed contract with your son. You walked out of the kitchen with Sylve Huckins and your son introduced me to you. He told you that I was the British horse trainer he had told you about, the one he was going to build the home and barn for. Why didn't you say something? There may be a rational and reasonable explanation but I have spent over 3 years, homeless, not understanding it. I understand it even less knowing that though I was a total stranger, both Dorothy McKeever and Sally Canning you KNEW, and you knew what your son had done to them and others.
Dr. Kenneth Ogilvie, I contacted you and simply asked for a reference, not knowing that Robert Huckins was your cousin. Robert Huckins had just stolen over $30,000 from the domestic violence shelter, HEAL, yet everyone was trying to hide it. There was a history of stealing large amounts of money. $65,000 PLUS from Nancy Canning. $89,000 PLUS from Dorothy McKeever, $45,000 from Francis McKinney. The list just goes on and on and on.
Because of Robert Huckins I ended up paying $140,000 to be homeless.. sat in the cold, emotionally, physically and financially broke. In the middle of a recession, with no way to recover the stolen funds.
Today Robert Huckins has his own home...
He also has OUR home.....
He also has a lot of people's money...
And his freedom.
Women are not banks or loan institutions. Women should not be the source of a retirement fund for people who don't want to do an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. Holding women hostage while playing with the judicial system, a horrendous game of cat and mouse extending YEARS, with the victims whose very homes, families and stability are in jeopardy is cruelty, as cruel as a physical beating. It is financial and emotional RAPE. Homelessness is not justice. It is a slow, painful death.
Please, I beg with everything I have within me, please convince Robert Huckins to stop this torture and return the building fund he stole from us so we too, can have a home.
