Another program that allegedly helps the homeless loses funding. Now St. Mary Medical Center, which provided about 45 percent of funding for The Advocates for The Homeless and Those in Need (AHTN), stopped funding AHTN.
In May, funding for the Homeless Outreach Support Transition Program (HOST), a product of the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania was eliminated. According to mental health hustler Keith Smothers, coordinator for the Projects for Assistance in Transitions from Homelessness Program (PATH), defunding HOST can adversely affect his program.
PATH is a branch of the Penndel Mental Health Center.
“Mental health is important for the whole nation right now,” said AHTN board president and co-founder Penny Martin.
What is this fixation on mental health in reference to helping the homeless? It seems to be a given that the homeless are mental. At the Code Blues, where churches give the homeless a warm dry place to stay on a cold night and are fed, Keith has been known to show up, promoted on site by AHTN. In their limited understanding of the homeless, they divine in their infinite wisdom that they are bringing them a vital service. Like the opioid epidemic, for which there are hard facts, AHTN and the Host believe there is a mental health crisis, a problem that is real in their minds. Maybe. Or it’s just a created crisis designed to fund an industry, much like the fabricated “Climate Change” agenda.
Without really knowing and understanding the homeless, these privately and publicly funded institutions presuppose they know what they need. For them, “homeless” is synonymous with mental disorders and other problems such as drunkenness and drug abuse. Evidently, they looked into their crystal ball to learn this. Just as we all know that when aliens from outer space land on earth they say “take me to your leader”, we know that homeless people say “take me to your shrink.”
Some of the churches not only feed the homeless to minister to their physical needs, but preach the gospel and show concern for their guests to address their spiritual needs. It’s safe to presuppose that we all have spiritual needs, which affects our mental state.
Who are the homeless? People become homeless for various reasons, generally not because they are mental: http://citizensservingthehomeless.org/theirstories.html
In Burlington Township, New Jersey, the Citizens Serving that Homeless are working on creating a homeless community. Church of The Nazarene pastor Byron Hannon, who said the church has a covenant with the mission, argued that the church can best help meet the physical and mental needs of the homeless. I agree.
People and organizations will decide which causes they will fund. They will shell out money where they believe it is the most useful; they want to be assured the money will be used efficiently to best serve the party they fund. St. Mary Medical Center decided to stop funding AHTN and focus on its “in-house services.”
When I was looking for housing, Allen Johnson, who was a recovery coach with HOST, once asked me if I were willing to be labeled as being so mentally messed up that I could not work for the rest of my life. This is fraud! Mental health hustlers like Allen are only interested in the homeless to shanghai them to get them signed up for tax payer funded mental health programs.
AHTN is begging for donations. I don’t believe they are serving the homeless but rather the mental health industry and their own interests. If I had the money I would not donate to AHTN.
It may not be intentional, but we seem to be draining the swamp in Bucks County, PA.
The homeless shouldn’t go down the rabbit hole to meet the Mad Hatter in Wonderland. Based on observation of people who have gone to Penndel Mental Health Center and testimony from them and from other sources, I believe they become mad after patronizing the center, with its psychotropic dope (one pill makes you smaller…) and psychobabble.
People purporting to help the homeless get housing should stick to finding them housing. Let the church work with them on their mental needs! http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Psychology/psych.htm
