Letters: ‘Not at our expense’

I do believe in the Caring Place and what it offers and the people it helps.

Re: Path to recovery (Letters, Aug. 22).

Please do not mistake me for a hater. I do believe in the Caring Place and what it offers and the people it helps.

I do believe we have to help the less fortunate.

My inability lies with the less fortunate taking advantage and disrupting the surrounding neighbors and neighborhood.

I do understand that the Caring Place offers shelter, food and assistance to those in need, but I do not believe it should operate at our expense.

Its operation locally presents consequences.

Do you have a solution or answer to this problem other than the obvious, which is to move the location of the source?
