Overnight Shelter Disease Prevention



There should be a back up in place to make sure that all bed linen is completely washed between each person. So that someone who is positive for Tuberculosis that slept with the blanket one night would not expose a new person to Tuberculosis the next night by giving that blanket to another person.



If there is a room full of people and one person is hacking and coughing then a facial mask should be provided to that person and the room monitor should make sure that they are not without a face mask.Hand towels and hand sanitizer should be installed in each restroom and on the outer walls near by the restrooms, by the food stations and by the water stations.

There should be monitors checking the restrooms and cleaning the restrooms periodically throughout the day and night to make sure that the bathrooms are properly stocked with toiletries, soap, and paper towels.

The dining hall and sitting areas should be sanitized (including the chairs) on a regular and daily basis to cut down on disease spread. It is only proper health that in public shelters that hand sanitizers in the dining areas would be installed.

But most importantly, the spraying with Lysol daily throughout the entire facility should be regulated and monitored.
Fluorescent lighting (and lots of it) is important to kill Tuberculosis and stop the spread of it.  

Lysol sprayed thoroughly and daily (twice daily in some cases) in every single overnight shelter (should be monitored and regulated) is extremely important to cut down risks of Tuberculosis, MRSA, Flu, and other bacteria as well. 

No one should be given dirty linen to sleep with.  There should always be paper towels to dry hands with in the restrooms. And the bathrooms should always be properly cleaned. 

No one who is coughing should be allowed to prepare food. If there is anyone coughing continually in a room full of people then a facial mask should be given to the person who is coughing. 


Everyone should be tested upon entry for Tuberculosis and screened properly before admittance. This is an issue that needs to be addressed across the board in every shelter especially with the high rates of MRSA in Los Angeles.  Thank you!

Sacred Heart Of God

SACRED HEART OF GOD

WHO IS THAT ONE OVER THERE
WITH A BACK PACK LONG SLEEVES AND MESSY HAIR

DRY EYES THAT CRY WITH OUT SHEDDING A TEAR
A HUNGRY MOUTH FROWNING ABOUT THE FEAR

WITH NO HOPE FOR NOW TRY AND NUMB THE SORROW
PROVERBS GIVES WINE TO THE POOR TO MAKE IT TO TOMORROW

WE SHOULD HELP WHO EVER IS IN NEED
'CEPT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD IT COULD BE ME

IF YOU CAN AND YOU DON'T GOD AIN'T IN YOUR HEART
IF YOU DO YOU'LL BE BLESSED SO BE SMART

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF IT WERE YOU
HUNGRY, COLD NO MONEY AND THE FLU

NO SAFE PLACE TO LAY YOUR HEAD
YOU'D BE LUCKY IF YOU COULD FIND A BED

SOME THINGS WE HAVE TO HAVE
A MAILBOX, FOOD AND A HOT BATH

Tell Me Lord





Tell me Lord


Tell me Lord is it not true
that we have alot of work to do?

Are we not supposed to give to the poor
give to the needy when you have blessed us with more?

why then do church goers lock their arms tight
to keep what they have hidden from the light?

They don't care who has a need
as long as it doesn't touch their greed?

yet, they say they are saved and believe
but they think it is more blessed to receive

Why then does this not make since to me
they shut their eyes to the poor so they won't see?

If I am wrong Lord please let me know
But you said in our hearts let Jesus show

Jesus you said to help and to give
pray for the sick this is how to live

To love and forgive everyone
then your work is seen and done

How could they get off the beaten path
of the mercy and compassion the Lord Jesus hath

not stingy and greedy like the scribes and pharisee
a religious hypocrite to enter heaven he has no key

like the rich man who let the leppar at his gate lay and beg
when he saw he was wrong he was in hell he was already dead

or the camel in the needles eye that will never fit
nor will the rich and greedy soul in heaven ever sit

Humble and lowly my Jesus does walk
not prideful or with arrogant talk

One day, maybe soon, we will all like Jesus live
with a heart of compassion to the poor we will give.

1 John 3:17




1 JOHN 3:17
IT IS MUCH MORE BLESSED TO GIVE
TO BE ABLE TO HAVE WHAT YOU NEED TO LIVE

YOU SEE IF IT WERE THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE COIN
WORRY AND LACK TO YOUR WANT WOULD JOIN

NOT TO MENTION THE WAY IT MAKES YOU FEEL
HUMBLED WITH PAIN AND HURT THAT IS REAL

BUT YOU SEE IF IT WERE THE OTHER SHOE
YOU WOULD FEEL HAPPY TO HELP AND BE BLESSED TOO

GOD SAYS IF WE HAVE WHAT THE OTHER NEEDS
WE SHOULD GIVE IT TO THEM SOWN AS OUR SEEDS

BUT IF WE RESIST AND CLING ON TO THIS
GOD IS NOT IN OUR HEARTS, LOVE IS WHAT WE MISS (1JOHN3:17)

THE WORD ALSO SAYS IF SOMEONE IS IN LACK
OUR FAITH IS DEAD IF WE TURN OUR BACK (JAMES 2:16)

THIS IS MORE REASONS WHY WE SHOULD GIVE
TO RECEIVE IS REALLY THE HARDEST WAY TO LIVE

                         HAVING ENOUGH FOR OURSELVES & ENOUGH TO SHARE
                         IT IS EASIER AND BLESSED TO SHOW THAT YOU CARE

                            HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE IN WANT AND NEED
                            NO MONEY IN YOUR POCKET T0 DO A GOOD DEED

                                         TODAY ME, MAYBE TOMORROW YOU
HIS word Tells Us That Too!
