Letter to the editor: Foundation does not help homeless

In reply to the article from Vice Mayor under “Reader’s Write” “Be ready to act on Sunday,” please disabuse your readers of the notion that the Truckee Tahoe Community Foundation will be providing any homeless person in this community with shelter.

I personally contacted TTCF on behalf of Ms. Deto only to be referred to Family Resource Center, which can not provide shelter assistance for any duration or at all.

Their only resource is suggestions for other agencies to assist the homeless, which are already overtaxed by demand. In other words, there is no meaningful assistance to be gained from TTCF.

In point of fact, no funds will flow from TTCF to Ms. Deto or any other similarly situated homeless family in the Truckee Community.
