Thanks United States Interagency Council on Homelessness for promoting this research & challenging us to get our communities to look for alternatives! Criminalizing homelessness is NOT the compassionate or reasonable thing to do in our communities. Solutions ARE available! Promote them in our community, Savannah!
This is also a call for Housing First based solutions! One more time we bring this to the forefront for consideration! There are lots of ways to engage the community here on this topic & we need some leadership to make this happen!
Stay tuned for efforts evolving to bring us all together on this issue! The faith community is to be engaged as well & we’ve posted about our ideas there, to get everyone talking about “Disrupting Homelessness: Alternative Christian Approaches”!
