The Best Place to Live, Work, and Play.
Hello D10 Neighbors,
CHALLENGE THE STATUS QUO ON HOMELESSNESS
City Council Committee on Homelessness
Camping Ban Enforcement and Triage
Growing numbers of unhoused neighbors are living in encampments across our city.
They are more susceptible to crime and physical health issues. Many also have behavioral health and/or mental health needs that aren't being met. Leaving them on the streets simply isn't a humane option.
Sweeps should be re-imagined to use evidence-based practices & human-centered design principles, such as:
Prioritizing encampments for abatement by level of risk to surrounding areas & residents.
Dispatching cross-functional teams, in advance, to offer sustained supportive services.
Identifying temporary shelter or safe outdoor spaces (SOS) & providing transportation to it.

My Pledge to You
Taking Accountability Seriously
Before long, I was leading the neighborhood PTO and garnering support for ballot initiatives to improve our school district.
I also chaired the board of a $15M social services agency, co-leading it through a successful merger and a national CEO search. My decade there taught me so much about addiction treatment, addressing homelessness, and providing effective mental health services.
