City Releases Working Group Report on Chronic Homelessness
Today the City of South Bend released a report authored by the Mayor’s Working Group on Chronic Homelessness. The report recommends a “Housing First” approach to permanently house chronically homeless individuals in the city, alleviate burdens on emergency response and medical care, and improve quality of life downtown and in neighborhoods.
Mayor Buttigieg commissioned the Working Group in February 2017 to develop strategic recommendations for addressing chronic homelessness throughout South Bend. The group, composed of business representatives, service providers, community members, public safety officers, officials in the criminal justice system, neighborhood advocates, academics, and members of the city staff, met twice a month between February and July 2017.
