Clearing out skid row

My first long article in SW. Since I tend to write too academically, I understood the majority of edits. The one edit I think really worked was moving the quote from the SRO resident toward the top of the article. The original essay is Housing the Homeless... Behind Bars.

I have had 12-step speaking engagements at many of the recovery facilities on the nickel, including Harbor Light and the VOA. Watching what is happening to people in the name of gentrification is horrendous. I will be adding links to homeless orginizations like the Institute for the Study of Homelessness and Poverty and PATH to this post soon.
