So a lot of work to do to get this turned around....
The idea is to go to the Budget and Appropriations committee on June 16 Thursday and speak at general public comment at the end of the meeting. The meeting starts at 10 am and will likely go all day. We would speak in public comment at the very end. DEM will be one of the agencies presenting the budget and this is in their budget.
We need to push that:
1). The money go to DPH
2). The money be used to create a NEW team
3) The money be used to follow the CART model - well paid, well trained, peer-based team that responds to 911 homeless related calls.
We will be sending flyer soon! Please put this in your calendar and tell your friends!
