A collection of “ragtag, cowboy” groups are gathering to figure out how to keep London’s hardest-to-help homeless people alive through the winter.
If they can figure out something, they might get financial help from city hall. But the challenge is a big one.
“It’s like, here’s the hardest problem, can you ragtag team of cowboys who have been trying to relieve the suffering of people come together with something?” Sarah Campbell, executive director of Ark Aid Street Mission, said.
The group wants to find a quick and short-term solution to feed and shelter what advocates say is a growing number of people who can’t or won’t find traditional shelter space this winter.
