Wow! What a story ("Slipping Through the Cracks," June 13)! I want to thank Dege Legg, Terri Fensel and The Independent Weekly for making compellingly visible what is often willfully ignored and so easily misunderstood: homelessness in this land of plenty is a complex, difficult and tragic issue ' one that merits our full attention and a caring response.

I hope the article breaks your readers' hearts and thus ignites their resolve to address the root causes of this condition as well as to give their generous support to the local agencies that compassionately alleviate their immediate needs.
