story about how Austin, TX addresses homeless issue

Sally Bachman

(I used to get regular emails from pdxshelterforum. Is there a new group discussion email address?)


Austin voters banned homeless people from camping in public spaces. The city is creating housing for them but not fast enough.

Police have had to eject hundreds of people from encampments. They still struggle to tell many of them where to go.
