Housing and Homelessness

Posted on Sunday, October 19, 2014, by Chris Donnelly

 

We had a 9% increase in homelessness in Vermont last year and while some of it is visible, many people are in hotels, hospitals, couch surfing or even in prisons without a home. In Opening Doors, Closing Gaps, we explore some of the challenges, data, and -- most importantly -- solutions we can pursue. It's the latest in our series of papers demonstrating the connection of housing with other public policy priorities or state government spending. The relationship between housing and homelessness might seem more obvious than say education or health to many, but we need renewed focus to solve the problem.

We ought to try to help rescue some from becoming homeless rather than force them out with Eviction or Auctioning off their homes to the lowest bidders!
