(Greensboro)  A group of homeless men and women may have to find another place to call ‘home’ because of one person’s complaint?

The homeless group belongs to a tent encampment in a wooded area near East Washington Street in Greensboro. A complaint had been issued by a member of a church located near the homeless camp saying that the homeless members were panhandling near his church and making the congregation ‘uncomfortable’.

Because of that complaint, the Greensboro Police Department contacted the owner of the property. The owner then asked police to require the homeless population, now about six of them, to move.  http://goo.gl/q2UhxO
