Great Goal, No Follow-Through

July 1, 2004

Abstract

[Street Sense] Along with more than 100 other U.S. cities and states, the District of Columbia has developed a plan to end homelessness in the next ten years. A team of public officials attended a federally-sponsored Policy Academy, designed to stimulate state and local commitment to ending homelessness, and returned enthusiastic. In this guest editorial, Martha Burt critiques their draft plan, "Homeless No More: A Strategy for Ending Homelessness in Washington, D.C. by 2014."
