In 2014, a goal was announced to end chronic homelessness for non-veterans by this year. But that effort may have been dwarfed a bit by the city’s declaration last year that veteran homelessness was “effectively over.” As we learned, that meant the city had housing available for every homeless veteran – not that they were all off the streets, or would necessarily ever be.
