Adopting a New Model for Reducing Homelessness

Jan 31, 2017

A call to radically rethink how homeless services are structured and provided locally found a generally receptive audience in Santa Rosa this week.  Now the challenge is to implement those ideas.

The Homeless Solutions Summit was well attended by a full spectrum of people concerned about homelessness in Sonoma County. Jennielynn Holmes of Catholic Charities says she thinks the event will mobilize changes.

Homeless Action organizer Adrienne Lauby was most encouraged by presenter Iain De Jong’s call for a one-to-one approach to providing homeless services, without preconditions.
