Marc Eichenbaum, one of the country’s leading innovators with expertise in the area of ending homelessness

This is NOT an endorsement of Jolene, I just liked what Marc had to say. Especially his thoughts on celebrating reducing numbers instead of celebrating helping more people. He also brings up how it is cheaper (for taxpayers) to find the homeless housing than continuing to leave them homeless. This is something I preach constantly. It just makes economic sense to get people working and providing for themselves instead constantly dependent on programs. We really do make it too easy in SF.

Homelessness & Affordable Housing Solutions

Anyone can be a problem finder, but being a problem solver is what Sioux Falls needs and what I'll do as mayor. I was honored to spend time this weekend with Marc Eichenbaum, one of the country's leading innovators with expertise in the area of ending homelessness and creating affordable housing. With programs like those lead by Marc, Houston reduced homelessness in five years by more than 60%.Marc and I were able to record a video during part of our discussion about solutions that could work for Sioux Falls.#letsgojo #cityofopportunity #siouxfalls
