The State Legislature is considering spending billions of dollars in a statewide effort to ease homelessness and provide permanent housing. Some key leaders also want to provide 7 million dollars more over the next 2 years to continue the Coordinated Statewide Homeless Initiative. Aloha United Way Chief Operating Officer, Norm Baker, says preventing homelessness works.
TAG: Baker says nearly half of all the individuals helped are children. If fully funded, an additional 2,200 households or 74-hundred individuals can be helped.
