ANOTHER WORTHLESS PROMISE

FROM DC GOVERNMENT

D.C. officials are launching an effort aimed at chronic homelessness that would provide permanent housing and extensive social services for some of the city's "most vulnerable" homeless people.

 

Mayor Adrian Fenty says the city will create a $19.2 million fund for the program, called Housing First that would be supported by the lease or sale of some city properties.

 

Officials say the program can reduce the chronically homeless population, estimated at 1,750, by 23 percent and decrease the number of homeless families in emergency care, estimated at 191, by 42 percent. They plan to find housing within six months for 480 of the city's most vulnerable homeless people and those who have been in shelters the longest.

 

This sounds again like utter nonsense.

 

Former mayor Anthony Williams had a plan that was suppose to wipe out homelessness in ten (10) years but nothing came of it.

 

DC’s homeless population is about 7,000 not 1,750 and thus DC officials will fail in this effort if they are budgeting for 1,750 not 7,000.

 

Let's just chalk this up to more lies coming from a government that has promised since 1980 that it would wipe up homelessness in DC only for the homeless population to grow with each year not shrink.
