    There should be more housing programs for the homeless. There should be a non discriminatory mandate when it comes to homeless seeking employment. There is not enough help or funding to end homelessness and I believe that our government should be doing something about it. I will support all programs possible that will help the homeless regain stability!

    I believe that in smaller towns there should at least be a warming shelter for home-seeking individuals to sleep in. I understand the costs and liability of running any type of shelter, and realize it is difficult to create outside of cities. However, home-seeking individuals are everywhere. Even Newmarket should offer a safe, warm place to sleep, especially during the colder months.

    We've all seen an increase in the number of homeless in our city. From people standing in the middle of intersections to the individuals who act entitled. Homelessness is nothing new, it has been around for decades. It's going to take community action, city government action and cooperation from land owners, the county and advocates.

    We are only as good as our weakest link, which is our homelessness. We will generate revenue & income through economic growth & development from our businesses, nonprofits & nonprofit holistic wellness centers to serve, provide to needs in community, & treat illnesses to become sustainable. Raise fees on developers for affordability. Meanwhile, we'll make sure all people have access to housing.

    As a community, we should be working together to shelter the homeless. Any of us could find ourselves homeless due to a loss of employment or a major medical issue. I support the “Housing First” model and the WLIHA.org legislative agenda and plan to focus on supporting and funding programs like San Francisco’s Navigation Center.

    The legislature has a duty to the residents of Washington State, regardless of socioeconomic status. If a resident ends up homeless, we need to find avenues to support that person during a hard time. Homelessness plagues our society and it is caused by many factors. To end chronic homelessness, we need to look to programs like Housing First in Salt Lake City, Utah which has reduced it by 92%.
