Retweeted by National HomelessHousing First is an amazing concept, but doesn't work for everyone: homelessness is often misunderstood, under-resourced, and occurs at higher rates than in urban areas:

Retweeted by National HomelessIf the city were truly concerned w/ health & safety of its residents, it would ensure they had appropriate housing.!! "cops discovered their arrests did little to fix the problem" Way to go San Antonio! #HousingNotHandcuffs is rampant in the US, but we pretend it's not: wish new efforts the best, but it doesn't take a special task force to figure out that housing ends homelessness:

Poor housing and sanitation, driven by poverty, has exacerbated rural southerners' risk of disease."As people who live in poverty, we are rarely invited to be part of the policy discussions that affect us the most."
Homeownership builds the middle class. But spending 70% of housing funds on homeowners leaves little for the poor.
In today's America, few Americans stand a realistic chance of ever changing their economic status. on the poorest in society rely on the myth that we can’t afford them. Yet we line the pockets of the rich. housing policy gives homeowners huge benefits. But renters, who are disproportionately poor, get nothing.
2017 city with such drastic income inequality has no business returning $ to build affordable housing:
2017 are heartbroken to announce that Michael Stoops passed away early this morning. More details will follow.
Middle-class jobs are on the decline: Many working people are underpaid & struggle to make ends meet. #fightfor15
