Homeless Outreach Support Transition Program (HOST), a regional nonprofit program that employs formerly homeless individuals as outreach specialists, has run out of funding.
According to WHYY Newsworks, the program is still operating on a federal grant it received from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration in 2015. HOST will shutter this month.
While President Donald Trump’s proposed budget would cut $6.2 billion from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HOST is shutting down because regional governments are unable to pay for the program once its grant expires.
Philadelphia’s homeless outreach program, a collaboration between local providers and the city’s Office of Homeless Services, was revamped last year.-30-
