Enough is enough.
Three times in one week homeless folks who spend nights at Kalispell’s “Warming Center” have defecated (pooped) behind the shed in the lot where the Copper Mountain Coffee drive-through hut resides on Meridian by the Flathead County Fairgrounds.
But this isn’t the first of nefarious events to have taken place at this location.
Warming Center “guests” have also been stealing tips and scaring the workers (who are young women) for quite some time and about a year ago a board member for the Warming Center was contacted and they said they would “look into it.”
Since that time one man has been peeking into workers’ parked vehicles (who was donning a machete at his side).
Another man went up to a worker’s car as she was leaving and screamed knocking on her window, “Let me in! I’m gonna get frostbite it’s freezing out here!”
This is ridiculous. The ‘Warming Center’ needs to provide full-time security as now this behavior is not only gross but illegal, horrible, and despicable. And contrary to what the ‘Warming Center’ want folks to believe NO these “guests” aren’t local displaced elderly grandmas primarily staying at the Center who’ve been evicted because their rental was sold to be made into Airbnb’s.
These are grown dangerous MEN. (And with machetes).
Pull it together Warming Center; you may be keeping folks from freezing to death at night in their cars but you must keep our community safe which you are NOT DOING.
