While working as a volunteer in a local shelter for Housing Forward I’ve begun to realize a simple solution to homelessness is making sure eveyone has a home. I realize that that goal is as challenging as it goes. Now that there are so many good candidates who have shown a willingness to serve our village as council members or mayor, perhaps we might ask them their own ideas about our village’s role in helping to solve this national problem.
