Each night dozens of long-term homeless people end up sleeping in makeshift overflow facilities. But by July 1st, they won't even be able to find such minimal shelter. Beginning next month, Cuyahoga County will no longer fund any overflow populations from the men's and women's emergency shelter. Our guests will discuss various options to county-funded overflow programs, including permanent supportive, supportive or pay-to-stay housing.
In addition, the program will also review current events in affordable housing, including:
* The recent jump in HUD forclosures, and how they'll further deplete resources for homeless advocates.
* The possible closure of the Jay Hotel on the city's near west side.
* The ongoing struggle to create a permanent supportive housing facility.
