Care for the Homeless Executive Director Bobby Watts was
featured last night on Pix11 news to talk about an initiative by the
Sergeant Benevolent Association to photograph homeless New Yorkers on the
street. The officers are posting their pictures to an online Flicker photo album in an attempt to expose a supposed “decrease in quality of
life in NYC” but what these pictures really highlight are the difficulties of life
on the street. Whatever the politics of the initiative, we know that it’s
crucial to find real fixes for the problems of people experiencing homelessness.
“I don’t take a position on the letter or
motivation. I really focus on results,” Bobby Watts, executive director of Care
for the Homeless, told PIX11 News. “To the extent that more people are aware of
homelessness and are determined to find solutions, that can be helpful.”
If you see someone in need of services on the street, call 3-1-1 to alert city homeless outreach teams.
