Tammany: While there may be law on the books, enforcement is another issue altogether. Those who do not have the means to fight are left with nothing.

Peer to Peer Mentoring group has noted a high level of housing issues for those that struggle in the city. With income levels of Social Assitance so low, the shelter portion for an individual is now set at 349.00 per month. Good luck trying to find shelter at that price. The reality is that most spend almost their whole welfare cheque on shelter, which leaves very little to provide food, transportation, and other things.

The only other options are the shelters, which are full, there are many health and safety issues re the shelters or people are left with the streets.

As a society we have failed!
