Hello Dave!

What do you mean by “we do help with that” regarding “feeding and housing the 

The reason I ask is because why would it be any different with any other 
insurance company? I would recommend going back to your insurance company and 
negotiating with them on exactly what feeding and housing the homeless mean to 
you And try to understand what their issues with that are. Does it mean that 
your are a commercial venture in their eyes?  

I’m not an insurance expert but does seem to me that if your status changes 
from residential to commercial that other insurance companies would have 
exactly the same issue. Is there something elseThat the insurance company is 
concerned about?
