In one of the most important moves taken by the government of Los Angeles, a state of emergency on homelessness has been declared. It was only yesterday when Mayor Karen officially reported that there was a need to address the issue of homelessness with the help of a prompt approach in order to bring a seismic shift.
The state is suffering from a crisis that has been able to afflict more than 40000 individuals. All the executive orders in this capacity have been signed to bring the government’s mandate into action as soon as possible.
Negotiations and consultations with the head of the city departments and the providers of homeless services have already been completed. Even the leaders of the collision government have been taken into consideration before proceeding ahead with this move. All of them are working in collaboration with each other to handle this state of affairs. A difference would be brought only with the help of collective effort.
What Is The Issue?
The issue revolving around the problem of homelessness demands the immediate unlocking of state and federal financial resources. There is a need to cut down on the possibility of Bureaucracy and red tape. A proper scheme has to be developed to remove the encampments around the streets. These communities are now being placed in rented hotels immediately.
An attempt is being made to convert these temporary housing solutions into long-term and sustainable solutions so that the issue of homelessness can be tackled with urgency and delicacy without compromising on the existing facilities. An aggressive facility is required to provide leasing facilities to the unhoused section of society.
The program details have been shared with all the concerned authorities so that the execution can be initiated. This program is referred to as Inside Safe. Total funding of a hundred million dollars has been kept aside by the treasury of government so that the scheme can be sponsored properly. The plan has been put into action for a period of 6 months.
Slew Of Actions
The declaration of emergency has been the first official act that has been undertaken by Bass after swearing in as the Mayor of the State. She has promised that the different parts of the government will work in collaboration with each other in order to confront the gruesome issue of homelessness which is one of the most important stumbling blocks in the success of a country.
The government and the private sector are also joining hands with each other to fulfill this objective. The act of the government promises to provide access to basic human rights to all the people who are citizens and non-citizens of the country. The right to home and the right to shelter are basic Human Rights that must be secured by the government.
The inability of the government to sponsor such life has a direct bearing on the quality of life. This is one of the most important missions the authorities want to Undertake. The mission period will be extended if the required target is not achieved within the prescribed time. It is the functioning of this strategy that will be responsible for the success of this program. If each department undertakes the duties assigned to it then the chances of achievement would definitely increase.
It can be concluded that the government’s approach to handling problems of national importance is completely in consonance with International principles.
The attempt of the government to provide the access to housing to people who don’t have one is extremely required for the achievement of the actual goal.
