The Oak Park Housing Authority owns the Sojourner house which makes it’s mission to house homeless patients after surgery in an effort for patients to recover and help places like MacNeal Hospital house these individuals temporarily. Now how this feat of overwhelming compassion happens without some resident going freaking crazy is beyond me. But this is really is good thing that the village is doing. Hopefully in turn there is some money being thrown to the village by the state of Illinois, because that is just how the state works.
At the same time major metropolitan areas are pushing their homeless out of areas they have decided to encamp upon, the village is giving temporary refuge to those healing form injuries they could not afford nor had a place to get better from. I hope that the village does stay the course of this mission at Sojourner house because these are individuals who obviously have no one else to depend upon Hopefully (I am using that a lot) as a society and as the idiots in Oak Park, IL who always like to portray themselves as that beacon on hill, who find the moral decency to keep this program going for years to come.
