"One Small Step!...... Hoping It's A Trend, ........ Praying It's A Landslide!! ......."

Good Afternoon;
Well I'm sitting here filling out an application for an apartment in one of the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Senior & Disabled Living Apt Bldgs., (I did tell you, Loyal Reader, that I received my HCVP voucher last Thursday... didn't I? .... YAY!!!! )
When I saw this (see link below) pop up on FB!

Connecticut Passes Landmark ‘Homeless Person’s Bill Of Rights’ Law

A very important piece of legislation, passed at the proverbial 'Eleventh Hour'.
This makes Connecticut one of only 2 States that have enacted a Homeless Person's Bill Of Rights and recognized that discrimination and abuse are ACTUAL issues that have been practiced by police, bureaucrats, hospitals, and governments.
One more State awaits their Governors signature, and 2 more are in the wings with pending legislation being drafted.
(And I'm not a gonna tell ya the link and read the Think Progress article!!)

Back soon with reports on my housing quest...
