Opinion: Lasting solutions – not quick fixes – needed for homelessness crisis
The recent media blitz of op-eds calling for urgent action on homelessness exemplifies the frustration and sadness most of us feel as we bear witness to the humanitarian homeless crisis on our streets every day. We agree that there’s much work to be done, but the way we channel our frustrations matters because not all quick actions will deliver lasting results. Fortunately, there is reason for hope as the regional Supportive Housing Services measure voters approved last year comes online.
We need to solve our homeless crisis for good. No more bandaids. Let’s do it right.
