Lakewood is world famous! Not for its rural beauty. Not worth its stellar institutions of learning. Not for its mix of cultures. Not for its special businesses. It is famous for its Tent City. In this must see video you will see how a couple from Holland cope with living in Tent City for a reality TV show.

Tent City could have been something that other Lakewood residents would be proud of - a solution to homelessness that is voluntarily-funded, provides for homeless persons' essential needs, doesn't take away their freedom, gets them off the street, doesn't take away their incentive to work, builds a community of mutual aid and support, coordinates volunteer effort, and saves the taxpayers millions!

The part where they 'look for work'. What a joke. No one serious just walks into stores asking for work. Buy a news paper or go online (at the library) and see how many help wanted jobs there are. A good reliable honest worker will always find and keep work. Might be minimum wage but its a job.
