CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Last year, homeless camps became a big issue downtown and the city looked for solutions to deal with it.
Now, it looks like some of the encampments are coming back.
" A person who's homeless is three times more likely to die if they if they're sleeping out on the street as if they were staying in one of our shelters and ten times as likely to die as anyone else," said Kevin Finn, President/CEO of Strategies to End Homelessness. "So our first goal is to get people to come in off the street into shelter where they are just safer and less likely to have something happen to them."
While this new camp is a concern, the issue of people living on the streets of Cincinnati may not be as egregious as it seems.
