Mason County- Ten year plan to end homelessness

Mason County- Ten year plan to end homelessness

Homelessness means not having a home. You do not have to be living on the streets to be homeless. Homelessness is a condition of having no fixed, adequate or secure place to live. While those “on the street” may be more visible, the truth is that you and I may have often interfaced with homeless people here in Mason County without realizing that they were homeless at all. Some are lucky enough to find shelter. Some may be staying with friends or family, or even with casual acquaintances. Many live in unsuitable conditions, poor conditions that may negatively impact their health, or in temporary sites such as campgrounds, the State Forest, or in abandoned cars or trailers.
