STILL NO SANTA CRUZ HOMELESS UNION  FRIDAY 5 PM MEETINGS…unless they get new leadership volunteers.   Call 575-770-3377  or 431-7766 to learn the latest.  Volunteer–they desperately need new blood with the passion to organize!  And new leadership with the time and resources to lead.  Especially with the City Manager’s avowed threat to disperse the Benchlands camp this summer and City Council’s failure to use the $14.5 million to set up survival campgrounds and support those that exist!
