On Thursday, January 25, 2018, Governor Matt Bevin joined Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, along with US Representative Andy Barr and non-profit organization leaders, for a roundtable discussion on transitional housing and homelessness prevention. Secretary Carson said they’ve made great progress towards ending homelessness across Kentucky, adding they must work together to end it. He said they have been monitoring coordinated joint efforts to find which method works best and to invest in those partnerships that have been successful. Governor Bevin said housing is a critical component of any successful re-entry process, especially for those exiting the criminal justice system and those fighting to break free from addiction.
