SD City Council Approves Plan to End Chronic Homelessness

Audio

Tom Fudge : Last night the San Diego City Council adopted a ten year plan to end chronic homelessness. The plan calls for development of permanent housing and services for the hard-core homeless. An estimated fourteen percent of the homeless population now uses fifty percent of the funds for homeless services.

San Diego’s move to end chronic homelessness is not happening in a vacuum. It is part of a nationwide movement to focus on getting the hard-core homeless off the street. The program is done in cooperation with the United Way and federal housing officials.

  • Hannah Cohen , consultant with the United Way of San Diego County.
