PROJECT T O U C H SEEKING SHELTER FOR RIVERSIDE HOMELESS article by Ashley Ludwig of Southwest Riverside News network.
"Project T.O.U.C.H. (Together Our Unity Conquers Homelessness) was founded at a time when all was well with the economy after Anne Unmacht had an epiphany.
“In 2003, I was still selling real estate when I was pulled by the needs of the homeless,” Unmacht said.
“There is a national initiative to end homelessness and we hope to soon have a permanent home for Temecula’s homeless shelter,” Unmacht said. “Homelessness is not neat and tidy, but full of complex and complicated issues. We work closely with the local law enforcement and don’t enable our clients who commit crimes.”
OK HERE'S THE LINK and reading it over, you are going to have to check in with the police before you're taken in to their program. Questions is, is this list of shelters on their site run by them or not? PROJECT TOUCH MAIN PAGE
