San Mateo Daily Journal: Housing advocates applaud homeless hotel shelters while pushing for the next solution

  |  May 24, 2021

Marshall Wilson, San Mateo County spokesperson, said the county is considering the purchase of additional hotels across the county.

“Our goal is to bring our county to “functional zero” — where any person or family experiencing homelessness that wants assistance can get it immediately,” said Wilson.

Looking at state level budget proposals, Charlow, Greenberg and Merriman shared optimism in the ability of each respective organization, the county and partner agencies to end homelessness.

“We believe this problem can be solved,” said Merriman. “I’m feeling more hopeful than ever.”
