A Bold Plan to Prevent Homelessness The EdiTorial board Bryn Protheroe

Their lead:"It can’t be said enough that New York’s homelessness crisis is complicated. In a city where people are squeezed beyond their means by rising rents, just one of any number of additional stresses — a lost job, sickness, addiction, domestic violence — can propel a family into the shelter system or the street."

This is an example of a summary lead

My lead:Homelessness continues to rise in New York City.

My lead is a single-idem lead

Who:This editorial is by the editorial board but this issue is affecting the homeless in New York because the article is saying that these people need help and is bring light on to the problems

What:This editorial is saying that what is being done for the homeless isn't good enough for example it says, "The problem won’t be solved by flooding the city with shelter beds, thought more are needed, blocking city hall shelter plans, Queens has been demanding that these families go suffer somewhere else."Those are only a few changes that can be made for the homeless but their are many more that are brought up in this editorial.

Where:This article is mainly focused on homelessness in New York but homelessness affects the whole world.

When:The editorial was published on January 23 2017 but it's been an issue since the beginning of time.

Why:This was made because 16,000 homeless families are out on the street without any where to stay and they want make people realize what is actually happening.

How:They wrote this article because they wanted to make a difference for the homeless and make things better for them.

"About 80,000 families in New York are at risk of homelessness each year. A serious effort by the Legislature this year to protect them would be better than the inadequate existing rental assistance programs, and better for protecting stable neighborhoods in New York City and communities across the state."

The current way that Homelessness is being addressed in New York City is short sighted. Providing permanent housing solutions is the most affiliate method for addressing housing needs.
