Missing pieces in homeless plan?


Janet Valente Pape, executive director of Catholic Charities, told The =
Eagle editorial board Wednesday that she thinks the plan released by the =
city-county Taskforce to End Chronic Homelessness is a "big step =
forward."

But she pointed to what she considers two missing pieces:

A community housing trust fund is needed, she said, to ensure =
sustainable operating dollars for the "housing first" part of the plan, =
which places the chronically homeless in their own apartment units.

And the one-stop center "really needs to be 24 hours," she said, and it =
needs some beds. Otherwise, she believes, some homeless will continue to =
fall through the cracks.

The plan "just doesn't go far enough," she said, echoing the view of =
some other homeless providers.
