Oakland Making Plans To House Homeless In Abandoned Hotels

Oakland has a solution to help get the growing number of homeless people living in tent cities off the streets and into transitional housing by purchasing a couple abandoned hotels.

Oakland city leaders voted to spend $14 million to buy single-room-occupancy hotels to house the homeless and some feel like this will be a great way to help get people off the streets and back on their feet.

The city wants to try and move fast though, because the locations they're looking at are at risk for developers to buy up the buildings to tear down or remodel to make space for luxury condos.

Nearly 3,000 people are living in tents, cars or sleep under the bridges/ freeways in the town right now, & Oakland wants to change that..
