Where Are They Coming From??
An old rumor is that BHI transported people from other cities and counties to fill the shelter. BHI had to “import” people to fill the shelter and demonstrate need. This is simply not true. BHI does not transport homeless people from other jurisdictions into Butler County. Most of the people seen are from El Dorado and the immediate surrounds. By self report, 80% of those coming to the door of BHI identify as from Butler County. Another about 13% are from other places, including those who are drifters and some who are stranded by various vehicle and personal mishaps. The final approximately 7% will not reveal where they are from or are here for a very short time before moving on.
