I am very sad to hear about the 45 year old homeless woman by the name of Shelly Jump whose body was found lifeless at an encampment in Auburn (“Police ID woman found dead near trail,” Journal Jan. 23). Many homeless people are suffering, looking for food, trying to find a warm place to cozy up for the cold night. I understand homelessness happens due to either drugs, no education, runaways, etc., by they are still humans. They deserve to be offered help, a chance to redeem themself, a second chance at life. I believe there should be at least warm rooms opened to the homeless, so they won’t have to spend their cold nights alone and freezing.
