Housing the Homeless


The closing of Bloomington’s low barrier winter shelter last spring means some of Bloomington’s residents are entering their second summer without a place to sleep. The local Ubuntu working group was formed last summer in response to this need, and has been advocating for a community response to homelessness in Bloomington. Within Ubuntu are members of Bloomington’s Catholic Worker community, who reached out to Bloomington residents with a new proposal this week. WFHB Correspondent spoke with Laura Lesuertmer (Les-URT-mer) and Ross Martini Eiler (EYE-ler) about what they have been doing to alleviate homelessness in town.
