Noting cuts in federal funding and how inflation has risen, Hausman has called the total $1 billion bonding proposal “inadequate.” But she remains hopeful that the bill and its $100 million for affordable housing will pass.

“A young [homeless] woman told me that the safest place to go at night is a Metro Transit bus,” Hausman said. “Sex traffickers can find a young homeless woman within 72 hours.

“If we don’t find these homeless kids, someone else will. And then what price do we pay?”
