Out of Sight, Out of Mind

The Pacific Garden Mission, now located at 1458 S. Canal Street in Chicago is in the midst of an urban wasteland - surrounded on two sides by multiple railroad tracks and on two others by mega parking lots., It is situated in an area where there is almost no chance that a person who might need its services would wander accidentally. Formerly located in the bustling South Loop area, on State Street, in a building it occupied for 84 years, it gained a roomy new facility but lost proximity to those it serves. Fewer street people now roam the downtown area - is this accidental? The QR code posted on the light pole reads: "Out of Sight, Out of Mind".
