Providing “temporary subsidized housing” for the homeless is a worthy project (“Homeless shelter program to close on positive note,” March 13). It's good that some, particularly families, are now off the streets.

However, a cold weather shelter's principal purpose is to provide shelter in the cold weather for the homeless. What about the 100 who had shelter the prior year but had to go elsewhere for that resource this winter?

We can be thankful we had a mild winter. I don't think Glendale should pat itself on the back too much. I would hope that when the city decides on future programs, they are not restricted to serving such a limited number of homeless people.
