Add comment on:Who is funding, operating and administering the 180/180 project?
John E. Colby
After Santa Cruz journalist/activist Robert Norse was unable to obtain the list of those managing the 180/180 project, I submitted several California Public Records Act (CPRA) requests to answer my own questions about who operates, administers and funds 180/180. This is important to me because I believe the 180/180 project should be open, transparent and accountable. For example, several disabled homeless people I have advocated for and represented — individuals with serious medical conditions using wheelchairs and walkers — have not gained housing from 180/180. I want to know why not. I want to know where they are on the 180/180 applicant waiting list, if they are even on it. I must know who operates and administers 180/180 to ensure my clients fairly gain permanent housing (which they deserve).
