Since we launched our initiative to address homelessness in 2014, we've helped more than 2,000 people off the streets and onto a pathway out of homelessness.
Last year, we increased our efforts and build three new homeless shelters in our city, allowing us to restore parks, streets and neighborhoods in time for the holidays.
But we know there is more work to be done.
We are working with The Salvation Army on our next step, building the Center of Hope homeless service center.
Things are moving along and we expect to see this come before the City Council next year.
