Statement on Terminal 1

When Homer Williams approached me about the concept of a private sector project to provide homeless services I was more than intrigued, but excited about the prospect. We agreed to start with a privately funded short term winter shelter at Terminal 1.

Due to the impending winter weather the City needs to open a winter shelter very soon. Unfortunately, Harbor of Hope will not be ready to open its shelter soon enough to meet the City’s needs. We are therefore moving forward with other options for opening a winter shelter.

I am very grateful to Homer Williams, Harbor of Hope and all of the private sector donors and supporters of the project. I hope to continue to engage them in efforts to work to shelter and house our communities most vulnerable unhoused residents.
