A Los Angeles-area non-profit has been unsuccessful in opening congregations’ parking lots to people living out of their cars, reports KPCC/LAist. CRCC Executive Director Brie Loskota told KPCC that the expectations on religious group may be too great:
One religious scholar cautioned against imposing too many expectations on religious leaders “to fill the gaps in a frayed social safety net.”
Brie Loskota, executive director of the Center for Religion and Civic Culture at the University of Southern California, said faith-based groups are already lobbied to help by different nonprofits and governmental organizations.
“Every door of the congregation is being knocked on by multiple people, often by groups that have very similar things they want to accomplish but have never talked to each other,” Loskota said.
