What does or should Savannah’s version of Home for Good LA look like?


What does Savannah's version of this look like? Ending chronic homelessness LA style

via United Way of Greater Los Angeles Facebook share of the above image:

We can end chronic and veteran homelessness by quickly moving people into housing and give them the necessary services to stay there. This is a shot of United Way Partner, Skid Row Housing Trust’s newest development, the New Carver Apartments. This facility was designed by award winning architect Michael Maltzan, and is one of many developments helping us to provide permanent supportive housing for Los Angeles County’s homeless.

We say:

The United Way of Greater Los Angeles is doing awesome work housing the homeless & ending chronic & veterans homelessness!

We should look at their model & figure out how Savannah can engage our community this way too! So, United Way of the Coastal Empire & Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, when can we start talking about our approach to ending chronic homelessness that partners with the faith community, the banks, the realtors & others to bring our version of Housing First (similar to 100,000 Homes Campaign approach [as seen in 100 Homes Jacksonville for example & Home For Good in LA])!
