The McLean County Board Executive Committee heard a report today on homelessness locally from Karen Zangerle of PATH.
Listen to the video below starting at 1:24:30.
There is no shortage of beds available. There is no shortage of money available for rent assistance. There are rooms at local hotels available for first responders, more rooms available for the quarantined, and a school ready to be available if needed.
There are no cases of COVID-19 at the jail. There are no cases of COVID-19 at the McLean County Nursing home.
Only 10 people in McLean County are currently living on the streets. 3 are sexual predators . Other are banned from shelters for drug use or previous violence. PATH is working to get all in permanent housing.
PATH has money available for rent and utilities assistance. According to Zangerle there are 7 local organizations working together.
Jenn Carrillo and her band of socialists need to send people to PATH. Help is already available. Time to find a new cause Jenn. De-incarceration failed, getting handouts will also fail. What’s next? Has Chicago given you orders yet?
