Homelessness and Housing in the News

Yesterday the Washington Post had a poignant story about Peter Bis who had passed away while living on the streets of DC.  He had a great story of traveling the country, living next to the United Nations, and then settling in DC.  It is unfortunate that our health care system does not do a better job of taking care of those struggling with a mental illness.  Peter Bis sounded like a great person that deserved a place inside with a door to lock for his peace of mind.  Imagine the stories Bis could have written or the creative mind that could have been unleashed on the world had he not had to worry every single day where he was going to live that night.
