  1. re. this interview: Hmmmm. I guess Marbut’s corporate model doesn’t work very well in general with just a 10% success rate in transitioning homeless people into homes (which don’t exist for such people in Chico). And Marbut’s detention type facilities (Navigation something something) to carry out those few transitions would be a stark metaphor for US compassion for the vulnerable – not good. Certainly, let’s not deconstruct the Jesus Center downtown and use its name for Marbut’s corporate model on the outskirts of Chico. That hypocritical move would be just too much.
