Homelessness - Bruce Harrell

Candidate homelessness link

  • Create a model where every resident and business can make tax deductive donations that go directly to homelessness and they can participate in community clothing drives, food distribution lines, clean-up work parties, resume drafting sessions, drug and alcohol treatment conversations and other activities that provide direct support to those experiencing homelessness.
  • Work with local and regional partners to develop an accountable, ambitious plan with transparency and benchmarks to expand and provide housing and services on demand to every unsheltered neighbor. This plan will be online and accessible to the public with measurable outcomes and defined deliverables, and establish progressive, dedicated revenue tied to meeting housing and cleanup goals, restoring taxpayer confidence.
  • Link progress in housing with restoration of parks, sidewalks and green spaces—with immediate funding and City personnel dedicated to trash and debris cleanup, neighborhood response, and de-escalating conflict.
