This week we have Andrew Phelps in the studio, the city’s Homelessness Prevention and Response Coordinator. He has spent much of the last year putting together an eight point plan to help reduce homelessness in COS. In this episode we walk through the different proposals in the plan, why they are there and the specific issues that they address, and talk with Andrew about some of the stats and facts around homelessness and how other cities have been addressing the crises.
You can find the city’s action plan here.
