I am responding to the letter from Kathleen Bailey on May 3.
I acknowledge that there is a homeless problem in Federal Way. I think your comments are based on fear. I’m not afraid to shop or walk in Federal way or take my grandkids to parks.
Homeless people need to have homes and if you are truly embarrassed to live here, I would suggest going to City Council meetings and ask them to support permanent housing or an increase in safe shelters. I believe this problem can be helped with understanding and compassion and not fear.
