What is Katy going to do about Homelessness?
I will bring attention, intelligence, and compassion to address the problem of homelessness. I have done my homework reading, attending workshops and most importantly listening to the fears and learning from :
people who do not have a home, people with a home, housing advocates and government officials.
Everyone agrees homelessness is a complicated problem with no easy solutions.
There are a lot of ideas and we need to use ones that have a proven record of success.
I also learned the current County Commissioners are doing the best they can, yet, despite their efforts, the problem is getting worse. I commit that I will work diligently to implement effective programs that address the problem of homelessness in Coos County.
The bottom line is that as human beings and members of our community, we have to find ways take care of each other.
