Create Housing, Stop Destroying Encampments
The Homeless Persons Representation Project opposed Baltimore City’s planned destruction of an encampment of homeless people on January 26, 2018. Encampment destruction is harmful to encampment residents, costly to the community, and does nothing to end homelessness. Indeed, encampment destructions can serve to further isolate former residents and perpetuate homelessness.
As HPRP Executive Director Antonia Fasanelli’s Baltimore Sun Letter to the Editor summarizes, HPRP urges the City to fund the voter-endorsed Affordable Housing Trust Fund and create a locally funded voucher program to provide permanent affordable housing.
