Two cartloads of a homeless person’s belongings were the first things people driving northbound on Havana saw after crossing the Denver/Aurora Border at Dartmouth on Friday, October 20, sitting in front of the “Aurora–An All American City” sign.
The Havana BID staff is out daily watching for people on the street who might need a little assistance and working with Aurora’s Street Outreach Team. However, we could use the help of business owners and neighbors. We ask that you be our eyes on the street and do your part by contacting the Street Outreach Team about Homeless Issues.
How do you contact Street Outreach?
The Street Outreach Team members go onto “Public Stuff” every day that they are working to review the Homeless Issues and respond.
The Street Outreach Team works Tuesdays through Saturdays, from around 8 to 4:30 p.m. Street Outreach makes regular sweeps of the Havana District on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but responds to Homeless Issues logged into Public Stuff as they are able.
BTW–the two carts of stuff belong to a couple who had gotten kicked out of an urban campsite in Denver and were on there way into Aurora to find a new urban camp site. By Monday morning, 10/24, the carts of stuff were gone. However, this couple refused help and refused to go to a homeless shelter, so there is not much else we or the street outreach team can do at this time. At least we tried to help them.
