Homelessness in Pensacola

Homelessness in Pensacola has long been a problem that is only getting worse with rising rates of unemployment, eviction moratoriums being lifted, and rapidly increasing housing costs in Pensacola. The response from the city of Pensacola has been improving, with the city council approving 200,000 dollars to be spent on homeless initiatives like a community center that would provide resources to homeless individuals. However,  Mayor Grover Robinson has expressed reluctance to follow the example of Tallahassee and other Florida cities in building a tiny home village to house the homeless. This is where Huts 4 Our friends come in, if the city won’t do it we must take action in our own community and provide this necessary resource for our homeless neighbors, the number of which is ever increasing.

The Covid-19 pandemic has put extra strain on those experiencing homelessness. Not only has it increased the number of homeless individuals, rising 34 percent from last year according to Opening Doors Northwest Florida, but it has also increased concerns of hygiene and illness in the homeless community. Our homeless neighbors often don’t have access to the hand sanitizer, handwashing, and masks that are necessary for staying healthy and safe from COVID-19.

With these factors of increased risk, as well as minimal but growing assistance from the local government, it’s imperative now more than ever that we come together to provide aid for Pensacola’s homeless community. The resources and housing that will be provided by Huts 4 Our Friends are essential in changing the lives of homeless individuals in Pensacola.
