Is Savannah’s focus on ending chronic homelessness changing too?: City changes it’s homelessness strategy, and no one notices « The Dreamer Propulsion Project


City changes it’s homelessness strategy, and no one notices « The Dreamer Propulsion Project.

We are likewise promoting this approach to ending chronic homelessness as we call it within our City Council & with our newly elected Mayor, Edna Jackson for Mayor of Savannah – but it’s a global movement we think!

In the USA theNational Alliance to End Homelessness & the 100,000 Homes Campaign are the focal point of our efforts here!

Progress is being made now – we are actually talking with the main-line poverty reduction centric focus on affordable housing & trying to make the case that the Housing Fund can also address chronic homelessness & partner with & adopt the approaches there of the 100K Campaigns like many communities have already done! 100 Homes Jacksonville is the closest physical location to Savannah that is doing a project & they just housed their first person recently!

However, we are starting here & progressing to the whole homelessness issue for others we see every day! It is just on our heart to address the chronic, oft-forgotten & neglected & mis-accused homeless population! We also look for the models at the higher end of the spectrum like LA’s Home For Good program that links the LA Chamber &United Way of Greater Los Angeles to accomplish GREAT things with the largest population ever of street homeless.

We additionally look for Atlanta’s efforts led by their United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta with associated partners!
