High Point targets panhandling, promoting safer aid methods for transient population

Updated: Apr 20

"“Shereá Burnett with Partners Ending Homelessness told me it’s important to note that not everyone who partakes in panhandling is homeless. She thinks the city of High Point is taking action.

“I think they’re also trying to offer resources which is important, so that they can meet both the needs of the community and the needs of those that are requesting the money. [The City of High Point] can try to take a holistic approach and assist people as much as possible without criminalizing what [panhandlers] are doing," said Burnett.”" -ABC45 NEWS
