Everywhere you look homelessness is getting worse in California – increasing by double-digits in the last ten years in California despite homelessness decreasing nationally. The reason? A failed policy in California called “Housing First.”
Under the controversial “Housing First” policy, politicians have committed billions of OUR tax dollars to their campaign-contributing developers for “government-subsidized” housing programs that cost taxpayers up to $900,000 per unit! What’s worse, as these expensive taxpayer-funded housing units are doled out to homeless people, we are not allowed to insist that the homeless actually get help and undergo treatment to fix the root cases of their dependency. In fact, any homeless provider that insists on drug-free, clean and sober, and sane program rules is prohibited from getting ANY taxpayer funds for their programs under “Housing First.”
It’s time for change. That’s where our “People First” Plan to Solve Homelessness comes in! Here’s what it requires:
We need tough-love to solve the homeless crisis in California. We cannot build our way out of this problem – we MUST transform the lives of each homeless person. Our philosophy must not be “Housing First” it must be “People First.”
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED! Our campaign has a two-track strategy on homelessness in California.
Strategy 1: Oppose ALL tax hike proposals and Housing First projects.
We’re sick and tired of throwing good money after bad – so we must cut off the money supply to the politicians and demand change.
Strategy 2: Place the “People First” Plan to Solve Homelessness on the ballot locally and statewide.
We will work with each city and county to place our homeless plan on the ballot in their jurisdiction to require local elected officials to follow the “People First” approach to homelessness rather than the failed “Housing First” approach.
