Check this out! CBSNews on @60Minutes will re-air & update the story based on activities since the Nov 27, 2011 airing of that update from last year!
It’s already getting great exposure in many local communities where they have adopted the model but we challenge the mainstream media in Savannah to take this on & ask “Why hasn’t Savannah adopted & signed up for this program to end chronic homelessness in our own community?”…
We asked the politicians running for office this year in Savannah to give us their position statements on this issue. Some did, none of the Mayoral candidates responded, one ineffectively, but several aldermanic candidates did. Some of those lost but they have committed to work with us after the campaign!
Now, let’s get to work!
