According to NBC News, those households were able to take advantage of public housing or vouchers or some combination of the two to avoid homelessness. According to HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge, the organization has been working with communities to help keep people from becoming homeless, “HUD and our community partners have acted aggressively to end homelessness by working with communities to get people into housing and provide the resources necessary to help prevent people from ever becoming homeless.”

Katovich explained, “These laws and these practices of enforcement do nothing to actually alleviate the crisis, and instead, they keep people in this vicious cycle of poverty.”
