If you were to redistribute these allotments as outlined in the Housing an Inclusive Denver plan, how would you do so?

I would maintain the distribution of and expand resources through a Comprehensive Fund in order to invest in persons at risk of homelessness and to support those who have transitioned out of experiencing homelessness. Funding homelessness as a high priority is good, but it also lacks a comprehensive vision for ending homelessness–not just for those currently experiencing homelessness, but persons and families who are on the brink of homelessness, living check-to-check. To be a truly inclusive city, not just paying lip service to the notion, we must develop a Comprehensive Fund, combining (not just leveraging) public and private funds, so we can leverage opportunities for those in most need, in order to address housing and homelessness across a spectrum of needs, including health and jobs.

How much of a priority is it that housing is provided for individuals falling into 0-30% of Area Median Income (AMI) on a scale from 1-10 where 10 equals the highest possible priority and 1 equals not a priority at all.

In August of 2018, Denver’s Road Home published its Three-Year Shelter Expansion Plan. The analysis suggests a reconfiguration of the current shelter system. Among other things, the plan recommends that the city:
• Create 24-hour shelters, where individuals can access care around work-schedules and other commitments/priorities.
• Eliminate arbitrary limits on how long people may stay
• Bring more services to shelters
• Expand shelter beds by building dormitories rather than warehouse-style shelters
• Lease apartments where families can live, rather than sending them to motels
• Create more options for young people, women, transgender people, couples, people with pets and others

Thanks to St FRANCIS Homeless can register to VOTE and have a mailbox so you can receive a Ballot. I am Write-in Paul Fiorino. The ban repeal and right to survive should not have to be a ballot issue to begin with. Denver has lost valuable lives and time in the Road Home and cannot afford to lose anymore. Let Denver VOTE. Impact bond takes away and that equity is compromised. I believe we have responsible people who can find the solutions and implement them now, running for office. The issue is the number one in the 2019 election as everyone fears the worst, homeless mess. Veterans are sorely missed from the list. I spoke recently with Veterans Crisis Center and Housing first is needed for our men and women who have served and come home to no home.

In August of 2018, Denver’s Road Home published its Three-Year Shelter Expansion Plan. The analysis suggests a reconfiguration of the current shelter system. Among other things, the plan recommends that the city:
• Create 24-hour shelters, where individuals can access care around work-schedules and other commitments/priorities.
• Eliminate arbitrary limits on how long people may stay
• Bring more services to shelters
• Expand shelter beds by building dormitories rather than warehouse-style shelters
• Lease apartments where families can live, rather than sending them to motels
• Create more options for young people, women, transgender people, couples, people with pets and others
