The new regional authority to house and serve our unsheltered community supports the urgent action that the homelessness crisis demands. Given this is only the one step in the needed regional response, I look forward to diving into the details and working with my colleagues, our city employees, contractors and the vulnerable populations we serve to adopt the regional governance structure as quickly as possible – to eliminate duplication, better coordinate service, and more holistically care for our residents.
