Bridge Home Beds Already Filled With a 300 Percent Backup

Venice already has occupants for the Bridge Home — 154 of them, plus they have a 300 percent backup ready.

Many questions have been raised regarding the new Venice Bridge Home by residents. They have talked with people on the street and people living on the street say they will not be a part of this system, yet obviously, they are a willing part of it.

Allison Wilhite, Venice Deputy for the Bridge Home, announced that they had 100 applicants for the adult area and 54 of the 18 to 24 year old residents signed up, ready to move in. Plus she said they had an additional 300 on the waiting list for the adult beds and over 154 of the 18 t 24 year olds waiting on the list.

    What is the point of this facility if it does not address homelessness in Venice? Wasn’t that the point of having the location in Venice? In other words, this proposal is actually increasing homelessness by 154? This is what I expected all along and this why Bonin should be recalled. His endless lies by him and his deputies are endless. These detached bureaucrats really don’t get it. They have no intention of cleaning up the encampments around Venice or the situation at the boardwalk. Bonin demanded that this site be turned into a permanent slum and here is the proof.
