Quepem Police Station gets an old goan man off the streets who was wandering endlessly in quepem area . 
Today again we took in to our shelter home an old goan man. 
♡♡♡ Thanks to LPSI Veronica , who used her presence of mind and contacted us and requested to rehabilitate him. 
LPSI Veronica was sure we would accept and such , she did the mans medical and other documents and very late night @ 11.50 pm reached our home in Quepem itself. 
Small video footing attached of 1 minute 👇
At her previous posting at old Goa , LPSI Veronica had brought many such homeless to our homes so she was aware of the procedures. 
Usually most homes don't accept so late any admissions . 
But our doors are always open especially if the paperwork is in proper order and complete. 
This old Goan man is Francis Dcosta as his papers state is either from RAIA or MARGAO and incase anyone recognises him please inform his family or the Quepem Police Station . 
We can't say much but only provide him a place to stay and look after him. 
He was not much dirty means he had just reached Quepem area that same day . 
My sleep got disturbed as the call came late night but we feel happy that after 3 months of starting this home in quepem , the local police station brought in the 1st such homeless into this home from this area . 
The quepem home is a men's home and it was started to take in homeless from the talukas of:
☆ Quepem
☆ Sanguem
☆ Canacona 
☆ Dharbandora . 
Other men's home in Cavelossim usually takes care of the homeless from the talukas of :
☆ Salcette
☆ Murmugao 
In this way , in entire South Goa we can accept any homeless men provided they are brought to our home by the Police. 
Once again you see , know or are told about any homeless requiring shelter , PLEASE GO TO THE NEAREST POLICE STATION & inform them . 
It's the Police duty to help and pick the person. 
Attached a legal document with this post which the local police station has to implement when you report a homeless. 
We can't  go running around Goa when such requests come in as the costs and time and manpower is a big constraint. 
Its not easy task for us , so pls bear with me . 
Most police stations are quite co operative and understanding and should you not get a favorable reply,  then let me know . 
I will give you the higher up nos or other government officials nos but you need to call and follow up on such homeless cases in Goa. 
It's high time , the New Government addresses this issue of HOMELESSNESS in Goa and provides 24*7 contact nos where any homeless once spotted and in need to help is reported to . 
There is a huge no. of Men , ladies & children on the streets of Goa and its rising daily. 
I see alot of talks , seminars, etc on social media conducted by certain people last 6 months but I don't see any homes started to get these people & children off the streets. 
Without shelter homes started or encouraged and funded , these  seminars and talks are reaching no where . 
Action is what I believe in and that action is SHELTER HOMES . 
We are determined to end homelessness in Goa and are now ready to also accept homeless children .
