Gov. of California asked to declare homelessness a state of emergency | The Tylt
The numbers are pretty bad. California has 116,000 homeless, more than any other state. That number rose 11% last year. Countless millions are spent on homeless services, but it just isn't enough. Some say it's time for Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency, to unlock even more funds to combat the problem. Others wonder if homelessness is a problem the government can even solve? They say the state would have better luck going after the price of housing, which pushes people into homelessness.

Homelessness has now been made a state of emergency in California. It is about time that this was taken seriously. Despicable.— Declan Michael Laird (@declanmlaird) August 23, 2016
