Baltimore’s homeless residents, advocates demand city extend hotel contracts, close shelters

April 23, 2021

Wearing “Housing is a Human Right” face masks, a number of homeless residents and advocates demanded the city extend its contracts with several hotels and motels to house homeless residents during the coronavirus pandemic. They also asked the city to work toward providing more permanent housing. The group, led by the homeless advocacy group Housing Our Neighbors, delivered about 400 postcards from homeless residents to Mayor Brandon Scott’s office on Thursday, each one outlining demands as well as complaints with the city’s current strategy to house homeless residents in select hotels and motels only until June.
