In case you missed her piece, “Rough estimates hold that approximately 11 percent of any given homeless population is chronically homeless. Though not representative of the working poor and single mothers that compose the vast majority of people living on the streets, in cars and area encampments, the chronically homeless often suffer from addiction problems and, as such, consume 50 percent or more of all resources dedicated to helping the houseless.”
As someone who has long worked in this area, I am enormously impressed and appreciative. We don’t see it often. It is a fine example of truly responsible journalism.
