Homeless Encampment in Alamo?

Living under the overpass.

I would guess that if you were homeless that Alamo would be the best place to be.

All you need to do is find an overpass to camp under and you will be left alone, also you can have one of the best views in California. That would be Mt. Diablo.

An "overpass" is a designation for a roadway "passing over" another roadway. The word Lehman is searching unsuccessfully for is "bridge." Camping under an overpass would be rather dangerous - all those cars, y'know...

All you can remark on is a wrong word typed.........,....... Nothing about the homeless living in Alamo or the conditions down there...........

In many cases it in mental illness that goes hand in hand with the homeless. Maybe some compassion for a fallen person is in order here.

We live in a sheltered enviorment in this area where we the homeless are mostly chased ou and we don't have to see that part of our society. Just travel ten minutes in any direction and there are homeless out of the bridges with cardboard signs. Whoever is here or has been here keeps these things out of sight for most of us. Homeless people have camped for years along the San Ramon Valley Creek until the Danville Police Department expanded. Why is this surprising in times when families and individuals are being forclosed upon? Whoever is or was here has good survival sense to stay in a place that is far safer than most areas. I don't think the view of Mt. Diablo is really what anyone in this situation would be concerned about.

Well to begin with i did not grow in in the Bubble of Alamo and Danville. I am fully aware that there are homeless in all directions of where we live either under a bridge or on the Iron Horse Trail or for those who have lost the place they live in for what ever the reason and are living with Family. I have no issue with anyone doing what ever they need to do to survive. I would say for the most part the Homeless i have had the pleasure to talk to are wonderful people, with the occasional exception. I for one have lost the place we live in due to a fire in the neighbors apartment, We were fortunate enough to have family in the area and they have allowed myself my wife and 2 kids to move in with them until we get things back in order. I agree that my statement about the View of Mt. Diablo may have been off base but you may as well enjoy it if you are here.
