As more and more Americans find themselves so down on their finances that they are plunged into homelessness, the country’s already tattered social and financial safety net seems powerless to do anything about it, save for warming houses soup kitchens and churches. Here in Newport, Occupy Newport has been talking a lot about what they can do to comfort the homeless, volunteer their time at the county’s warming shelter at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds (when it’s operating) and assessing local resources for the homeless.

Lincoln County Commissioner Bill Hall, a tireless advocate for the poor and homeless, joined them recently to discuss the possibilities. Afterward, Commissioner Hall talked with our Brad Taylor about his observations on homelessness and what Occupy Newport and others can do to lend a hand.

Commissioner Hall’s comments are in the above video.
