So much more needed - multi-agency taskforce to make sure led by people w power to make real change & 2nd Common Ground,
Past year - accom found for 130 ppl sleeping rough, incl man in Woolloomooloo who had been homeless 30yrs (90% remain off the street),
In past yr, increased coordination btwn our homelessness unit, govt agencies & others delivered real successes,
Our staff on ground, working w/ ppl sleeping rough/experiencing homelessness, day in day out. Doing good work, getting results.
