A follow up mailing to my email (below):


It really depends on the specific population. For the chronic homeless male, the numbers can be higher. But for the chronic homeless female, they tend to be lower on substance abuse and higher on mental health. Overall for the homeless population in general, it is around 40% that are on the streets due to substance abuse and mental illness. This will seem low, until you factor into the equation that 43% of our homeless are women with children.

I am familiar with your program and would invite you to become part of the efforts to end homelessness. All of our meetings are open to the public. The Implementation Meeting has about 60 agencies in attendance at each meeting. All the meeting times and places are listed on the website.

Hope this provides some additional clarity. Roxane White
