Homeless Advocates Rally at the Humboldt County Courthouse
Story by Ryan Hutson:
They spoke to the downtown crowd during the morning rush hour, calling attention to homelessness and housing concerns.
The ongoing housing crisis in Humboldt County, as it is described by the group, has been repeatedly brought to the attention of the county Board of Supervisors. Dissatisfied with the amount of progress being made, protesters staged a press conference and rally on the courthouse steps just prior to the Board of Supervisors meeting this morning.
Speakers in support of the proposed tiny house village concept spoke to the crowd about their concerns and potential solutions. With the winter season now getting underway, they believe there may be an increase in the demand for outreach services to the homeless.
