HOMELESS PERSPECTIVE LIVE BREAKING NEWS – January 28, 2021

Sacramento storm devastates unsheltered homeless leaving two dead.

Hosted By: Tim Houchen
January 28, 2021 —

Tonight’s story takes us to Sacramento on Tuesday night when very severe weather destroyed homeless encampments, caused injuries and sadly two persons experiencing homelessness were killed.

Earlier that night, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg railed city staff members and county officials who failed to open emergency shelters and warming centers because temperatures did not reach the 32 degree mark so those facilities were not made available despite high winds, heavy rain and temperatures that hovered in the thirties.

An emergency meeting of city council was called for on Wednesday by Steinberg and the council voted unanimously to open at least one warming center that day and several other facilities as quickly as possible.

See this story documented in several video clips from ABC 10 Sacramento and the Sacramento Bee.

Top Stories at HomelessPerspective.com this week include a story of concern for homeless school-age students who are not showing up for their distance learning classes since COVID and they may also be missing out on assistance from the McKinney-Vento Act.

Another story explains why over 80% of California CoC’s will not be conducting Point-In-Time counts on homeless populations.

And Long Beach is moving ahead with plans that require housing developers to include affordable housing units.
