The count will run now through May 14, 2017
Some of you have participated in the past – others have not.
So let me give you a bit of information …
As you may or may not be aware, the Massachusetts Commission on Unaccompanied Homeless Youth has been working to gather crucial data for better understanding the scope and needs of unaccompanied youth and young adults who are experiencing housing instability or homelessness.
This anonymous information is gathered through an annual survey as means to advocate and invest in services and housing that meet the needs of this vulnerable population.
The Commission defines unaccompanied homeless youth and young adults as a person 24 years of age or younger who is not in the physical custody of a parent or legal guardian and lacks a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence.
Your participation is vital to sustaining the momentum built and legislative investment in funding local resources and in taking action to understand and end youth homelessness!
Please accept our sincere thanks in your efforts to help us to make this the best year yet!
We are contacting agencies to get an estimate for the number of surveys you believe you will need.
We can print them, deliver them to you, along with some giveaways for young people who complete the survey and pick them up.
PLEASE REPLY ASAP – so we can get these out to you!!!

Chandler elementary school in Piedmont looking so pretty today …
Bad news: driving up Endicott Street – more dumped crap. City of Worcester takes the illegally dumped garbage away (just two days ago!); the slobs dump more stuff – DEFILE OUR INNER-CITY NEIGHBORHOODS. Landlords must be fined. PEOPLE MUST BE EDUCATED!!!

Coming home yesterday, after delivering ICT, I saw, to my delight!, that the garbage-mini-mountain at 90 Endicott St. had been excavated the hell outa my neighborhood! Yay! (Thanks, Mayor Joe Petty and Worcester Mayor’s Office!💐💐) But not before I spied this dispiriting sight by the corner of Endicott and Millbury streets, just several yards from the first pile of shit. And what’s with the heap ‘o concrete at Bott Square?:
Still, yesterday’s Woo trash was dwarfed by the Mass of Shit and Garbage we call the President of the United States: Donald Trump. Thin-skinned Trump skipped the correspondents’ dinner last night to have his needy, dishonorable, ecosystem-killing, sick self propped up by the good people of Harrisburg, PA – Middle America.
A low point for my country!
The nadir for white working class Americans! A big chunk of the USA – a group of folks that Trump plays like a fiddle!
Here he is in Harrisburg, yesterday, at the 100 Day Rally he threw for himself, brain washing good people who fear so many things, primarily: #1: losing their jobs in the new, global economy and #2: a multicultural America.
They are looking for some kind of savior, someone to help them make sense of it all and keep them in the middle/lower-middle class. Unfortunately, the Dems were asleep at the wheel this election cycle, and Trump – a showman par excellence – shrewdly stepped in to fill the void. Wrong answers. Wrong leader.
Here’s what Trump missed last night. The kid’s very good, but Stephen Colbert would have shattered Trump into a million golden orange pieces! His speech would have been iconic satire! Oh, well.
Writing this post with Cece at my feet …
Lucky Cece! She has no idea!
Every day I wake up depressed about this President. Hopeless. Afraid of a nuclear war … global obliteration.
I hated Reagan, loathed Geoege W. Bush. But we are in uncharted (polluted) waters with Trump and his evil geniuses Bannon, Conway, Sessions, Ivanka – the list of nefarious, mendacious hacks in the Trump White House seems to go on and on and on – even though he’s filled so few top govt jobs (most important at the State Dept.). These clowns are attempting to shred American democracy right before our eyes! The ones who appear “sane”? Trump’s top generals-military boys. But they are just as bomb-happy nuts as Trump. Only their reasons for restarting a nuclear arms race sound way more intellectual/”intelligent” than Trump’s “tremendous,” “great,” “brilliant” and other bull shit adjectives that he uses to sell Americans war/death.
… because these days it is so much dumpier and trashier inside and outside the White House!
Sing it, Lucinda!!!!💜💙💛💚❤💗
Breakfast in bed …
Hit the road …
Mutts in tow …
See all the illegally dumped garbage in my ‘hood (this shit, yesterday, Millbury Street) …
My summer day shot to hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not cool, City Hall seat-warmers, pencil-pushers, bootlickers …
… Everything except the visionary…
Save us, Oh Lord!
