Combating Homelessness


Every night over 3,000 people - men, women and children - are without a bed on which lay their head. The County is responsible for making sure that those without that bed have a place to sleep. Unfortunately, too many people in Westchester, one of the most affluent Counties in the nation, still sleep in substandard facilities.

 

This ties into affordable housing: almost two-thirds of cases of homelessness result from eviction. More affordable housing is crucial to attracting and retaining Westchester’s workforce which in turn will help alleviate homelessness.  

 

As I have done on the City Council, I will push to make sure facilities are monitored and kept up to reasonable standards. Just because people have less doesn't mean we should treat them like they are less.
