Homelessness

While the city has been effective in the past few years in helping homeless people get off the streets, they have not done enough.

Temporary housing and shelters create a revolving door.  Navigation centers should be scaled to meet the need in each neighborhood, rather than a one size fits all strategy across the city. Homeless individuals are able to get off the streets briefly, but there is a failure to move them into permanent housing and provide employment opportunities. Without appropriate resources, they ultimately find themselves right back out on the streets. I will ensure:

  • Funds dedicated to homelessness are being spent effectively. ¬†
  • More permanent supportive housing is built.
  • Long-term employment and mental health services are expanded.
