We all pay for Homelessness

From the desk of Catherine Henry

It is so great to see the positive reports out regarding the progress in fighting homelessness here in Denver.  It seems like we finally have a solution that is working!  Our jails and emergency rooms are less crowded, and that means the cost to taxpayers is less.  Good news all around for those who are battling an issue that resonates with all of us. In a recent article published in the Coloradoan, we get a better idea of what resources and money are required to help deliver the services and support necessary to improve a situation  — that does in fact impact all of us.

We at Work Options for Women are always interested to support other programs that are helping our state’s homeless population. Feel free to share your favorite organizations in the comments.
