about 2:29 talks about youth homelessness
In this short interview Barbara Poppe talks about President Obama’s “Opening Doors: The Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness”.
The plan has 4 key goals:
- End chronic homelessness by 2015
- Prevent and end homelessness among veterans by 2015
- End family, youth and child homelessness by 2020
- End all forms of homelessness

no dept of youth services at federal level – all addressed through education and housing services

@hardlynormalLAPD orders officers to show ‘compassion and empathy’ to homeless people ow.ly/9Kzn301w5xL
The policy was a “good start,” but didn’t go far enough, said Carol Sobel, a civil rights attorney who has successfully sued the city over how it treats the homeless. The key, she said, will be for the LAPD to monitor officers to ensure they’re abiding by the new guidelines.
“We’ll believe it when we see it,” Sobel said. “You can hand out all the policies you want – that doesn’t make a difference unless you put enforcement behind it.”
