Housing, It Can’t Come Soon Enough

There’s a curiosity now — with some shelters empty, where are people staying? How many are still in cars, tents and hotels? As hotel vouchers come to an end, will shelters again fill? The question lingers, laced with the fear of impending cold nights.

Some were barely hanging on as it was, with just enough money to pay rent. I met a family that is living outside, afraid of the shelters, and the fire took their car.

Where do they go now for an affordable rental?

The last I heard the wait is three years.

The housing committees, builders, planners, banks and commissioners are working on a plan to rapidly expand housing.

Some kind. Any kind. It can’t come soon enough.
