*Please FWD to currently and formerly homeless folks who might want to join us.*

NOTE: <wgcp@earthlink.net> is the HPN *SUB, info & help address.--Tom Boland


Homeless People's Network invites homeless and ex-homeless folks to join our Internet discussion group.

I encourage folks who are CURRENTLY OR FORMERLY HOMELESS to become members of HPN. Note that by subscribing, you attest that you fit the above definition of being homeless.

HPN will have archives soon. Thus everyone on the Internet, housed or not, can hear homeless people's views on policies, programs and issues that affect us.

As listowner, I aim for the group to create a direct voice for homeless people, unfiltered by others. We need to speak for outselves, not let others speak "for" us without our consent.

We have first hand experience on what does and doesn't work to end homelessness. Let's send the world our messages about that.

HPN will not censor posts. Still, I encourage members to: 1) address how to end homelessness, 2) treat facts and theories fairly, (and) 3) write in a tone of personal respect.

***E-mail SUBSCRIPTIONS to Homeless People's Network to me (Tom Boland) at:


Leave the subject line blank, and in the first line of text write:

s*b*cr*b* hpn <your email address>

In the next line, include the sentence:

"I am currently or formerly homeless".

Say also "I will post and reply to HPN and it's members under one name only". (This helps avoid confusion as to facts and who wrote what.)

Add where you found out about HPN.***

Then I will sign you up you manually. HPN posts will then come to you as folks send them. Once that happens, you can then POST or REPLY to the address from which HPN posts are sent.

If you join, please consider sending us a FYI post *introducing yourself. I look forward to your views on the causes of homelessness--and the solutions.

Seeking peaceful means to homeless peoples' aims--Tom Boland, HPN listowner
