letter rom tHe mayor
Dear Readers:Unlike any other city in America, residents o New Orleans know what it is like to e without a home.Indeed, ater Hurricane Katrina, many who never thought they would ever e homeless were suddenly let with nothing.In the years since, the numer o homeless in New Orleans has douled and on any given night thereare nearly 6,500 people living on the streets o our city including unsheltered individuals, youth andamilies. This numer also includes Veterans who served our country and mentally ill citizens whosehousing situation is complicated y untreated conditions. This is an urgent issue that needs immediate attention. Since taking oce in May o 2010, I have madeending homelessness in New Orleans a priority. To lead this eort, I appointed a long-time home-less advocate as the City’s rst Director o Homeless Policy. Plus, I convened a Homeless Services Working Group with outstanding representatives rom a diverse cross-section o government, usiness,and community stakeholders. This Working Group was tasked with developing a Ten-Year Plan to EndHomelessness in the City o New Orleans. We are reaking new ground. For the rst time the City o New Orleans along with our riends andpartners at the Departments o Housing and Uran Development, Laor, Justice, Veteran Aairs, andHealth and Human Services have a single comprehensive plan that will lead to an increase in availaleresources, improve coordination, and take on several urgent issues o grave concern.Ending homelessness in New Orleans will e no easy task, and we must e united in that eort — weare one city that will share one ate. This is our mindset and the Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessnessrepresents a start — a viale roadmap to ending homelessness in our community so all New Orleanianshave a place they can call home.Sincerely,Mitchell J LandrieuMayor, City o New Orleans
