A recent Associated Press story describes attempts in the city of Little Rock to get homeless people out of the woods and into shelters. The Clinton Library, set to open in November, was built on the site of a warehouse where homeless people used to live. Some say attempts to remove homeless from the area are motivated by a desire to make the city attractive to those who will be visiting for the library's opening. The president of the Clinton Foundation denies that the attempts to clear out homeless camps are related to the library's opening. Strategies for moving these people include making sure everyone eligible for veterans benefits is getting them, and making more people aware of shelter options.
