"There’s a shortage of affordable housing in San Antonio, and cost increases are outpacing wage growth. A project like Towne Twin Village is exciting because the city needs more permanent housing options with add-on services," said Katie Vela, executive director of the South Alamo Regional Alliance for the Homeless.
"San Antonio has not yet experienced a homelessness crisis on the scale of other major cities due to our availability of shelter, extensive onsite programming, and organizations working together. But any level of homelessness is too high. We can continue producing positive outcomes and trends while reducing the systemic barriers and issues that cause homelessness by coming together to meet individuals where they are."
