ELKHART, Ind.—Elkhart County’s Triad program is working with local law enforcement and businesses to help the county’s homeless population warm this winter.
Triad, a non-profit, is collecting blankets, winter coats, gloves and more for Elkhart’s homeless population.
According to the Elkhart Police Department, there are nearly 40 known homeless people that do not wish to be housed in government run shelters.
As such, police officers will keep warm clothes in their squad cars to hand out to the homeless in need.
“We want to educate and we rather do that than have an enforcement approach with our homeless.Homelessness is not against the law.” James Ballard, EPD Corporal.
