I can still be there for the others

I can still be there for the others

Paula Hudson came from West Warwick, RI, and was appointed Executive Director of Better Lives Rhode Island.

In 2017, I moved to Rhode Island and went to work with real estate developers in Cape Cod to create affordable homes. Before I witnessed the homeless and housing crisis, I was drawn to becoming a caregiver for Better Lives by the periphery to enter the world.

Having established a house for three clients within two months, I advocated and found homes for three clients; the neighbors, those people with whom we were neighbors, humans like us, but were treated like paper bags. I harassed all those who had trouble living. I kept alerting and calling.

As the holidays move forward, hundreds of people are sleeping in the streets and tents in our neighbourhoods. They struggle to feel empathy towards the homeless when it is easier to judge them. No one wants shelter in the house of a homeless person who dreams of a homeless shelter.

My organization has spent a little time managing 5,000 people a month in the housing crisis. One thing is namely, the supply of money and housing support for five million people a month.

Since the pandemic caused, the company distributing bagged meals instead of those to cook. Our pantry at 15 Hayes Street is open, but not everyone has access to a kitchen to prepare food.

It can feel like I'm facing a different obstacles with a different perspective, and without the possibility of sane and ebbe, to leave others with love. I see personal experiences at various levels as a huge difference between personal and personal experiences. I know I value having love, because the treatment is so so worthless.
