MetroFocus: Homeless Hotels Failing Grade
“State lawmakers release a scathing report on the city’s homeless hotels. With the mayor less than thrilled we’ll break down the findings with an expert on a situation spiraling out of control.”
"Over the last 30 years, there has been very little change in policies to address family homelessness. But a capital investment to develop new Tier III facilities would positively transform the entire family shelter system. The homeless and the community would be equally served while the costs of doing so would go down."
"A comprehensive vision is precisely what is needed—comprehensive enough to include educational supports, mental health services, job training and other on-site shelter services to put, and keep, families in their own homes."
