It all starts at home.
Strong families are the backbone of our community. At this moment in time, our politicians have forgotten about a part of society that can be called the “working homeless.” So many of our families are one paycheck away from being homeless. I believe our priority should be on providing housing for families in or near homelessness. I believe in giving a hand-up, not handouts. When in Olympia, I will fight to direct support to those willing to work to improve themselves and their families. Because a child who doesn’t have to worry about where they will sleep, or when their next meal will be, can focus on the little things, like being a child and their education. Strong families equal strong communities.
