We need now to build on that baseline, because people need homes. For home is where hope lives. The hope for a better future. The hope for safety, security, and stability. The hope to succeed in school. The hope for good health, and a long happy life. The hope for a decent job. The hope that our kids will grow, and thrive. The hope to be seen not as a problem, but as a human. The hope to have a fair chance in this great city: The city that made a promise 40 years ago that no one should have to live, or die, on our streets. With housing comes hope. And everyone should have the right to hope.
