The Mayor meets with his executive committee on the 24th. His preliminary budget puts grossly insufficient funds towards addressing the shelter crisis, meaning the horror will continue for homeless people.

We have all been witness to the shameful scramble that characterized the City’s response to homelessness as cold weather gripped the city.
