Plan To End Homelessness Foiled By Homeless People

Way back in the optimistic year of 2008 when it seemed like nothing was out of our collective reach, Baltimore's esteemed, and not-yet-convicted mayor debuted a 10 year plan to end homelessness in Charm City. Tens of millions of dollars and two years later, the Baltimore Sun reports on city efforts to close a tent city under a major highway leading to this statistic:
Early last year, Mayor Sheila Dixon announced a 10-year plan to end homelessness in Baltimore. A June study showed Baltimore's homeless population had increased by 12 percent, to about 3,500 individuals.
It's progress. Not forward progress, but the statistic is moving. And that's definitely some way.
