Will Cambridge Misappropriate Another Opportunity to Help End Homelessness?

Will the Cambridge City Council’s okaying of $18M to buy school’s 4-acre field, help to End Homelessness, or will it be another misappropriation?

Housing that are affordable to people at a wide range of income levels are in short supply across Cambridge, Massachusetts. Significant inequities in access to housing still exist, creating disparate impact. The homeless and renters at the lowest income levels face the greatest challenges with housing cost. Now in Cambridge our home less service systems have become increasingly bottleneck by scarcity of decent housing at sustainable cost, and achieving our shared goal of ending homelessness remains out of reach.Conversations on housing affordability and homelessness should begin to take center stage here in Cambridge. Partnerships to align thinking and discussion should be the mathematics and order of the day, in the local affordable homeless housing arena here in Cambridge Massachusetts.Expanding housing access to people who are at risk of or are experiencing homelessness, should always be foremost in the mentality and mindset of local politicians and others linked to the affordable homeless poverty housing arena.Until this actually happens, the state of affordable housing in Cambridge, Massachusetts will remain abnormal. Thank You.
