Ending Homelessness In Pitt County

Could you imagine in one decade, no one will ever have to live on the streets of Pitt County? That's the mission of a new task force which met tonight in Greenville.

50 members of the community along with local leaders came together for the first blue ribbon task force to end homelessness in the county.

This is a ten year commitment to do more than just "house" the homeless but to get them into their own homes. President Bush allotted four point four billion dollars last year to end the homeless problem. His liaison of the inter agency council on homelessness led the charge to encourage members to end this public injustice.

In the coming months there will be community forums to get input on this issue.
