Homelessness Mounting Among Kids, Families Catherine Komp January 29, 2007 Described as America’s "dirty little secret" by social-service providers, an estimated one million young people experience homelessness each year. Many are unaccompanied teenagers, sleeping in parks, abandoned buildings or "couch surfing" at friends’ houses. Others are younger children, often in the care of a single parent, who double-up in relatives’ homes or in crowded shelters. The even-less fortunate live in cars, tents and under freeway overpasses. Children and families are the fastest growing segments of the homeless population, according to advocates, who say this serious social problem driven by poverty and a scarcity of affordable housing is not widely recognized by the public. "The reason why this isn’t a priority for people is because people don’t see children on the streets. It’s not visible, it’s not shown," said Dr. Ralph Nunez, president of the New York-based Homes for the Homeless, a group providing housing, training and employment to homeless people. Homelessness not only affects the present family unit, Nunez said, but will "have an impact on the next generation of these young children as they begin to age into this nomadic lifestyle." Nunez joins hundreds of national and local advocates across the country trying to amplify public dialogue about child and family homelessness, while also providing much-needed services to this growing population. The problem has become so pervasive, Nunez predicts it will take decades to address. ‘Throw-Away Kids’ and ‘Runaways’ In and out of foster care, shelters and group homes since she was a toddler, Krystal Compagna was without stable housing for most of her life. Fleeing abusive parents with drug and alcohol addictions, she spent four years as a homeless teenager on the streets of Las Vegas. During the day, Compagna went to school and to her job at the mall. At night, she stayed at friends’ houses until their parents got suspicious, and then resorted to sleeping on porches, her school’s bleachers, and even walking all night if there was nowhere else to go. "At first I was scared, but you get used to it," Compagna, now 20, told The NewStandard. "Would you rather try to sneak back into your house and get your ass beat basically, or would you rather take your chances and hide out on the street and try to stay warm?" According to a July 2006 report published by the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth (NPHY) and local service providers, there are about 383 unaccompanied homeless people between ages 12 and 20 on any given day in the Las Vegas area. Precise nationwide figures are harder to come by. The US Conference of Mayors, which releases an annual survey on hunger and homelessness, estimated that 2 percent of the homeless population in the 23 cities participating in 2006 were unaccompanied youth. The US Conference of Mayors represents leaders of cities with 30,000 people or more. Researchers who study homelessness emphasize the difficulty of documenting any homeless population with precision. Limitations include the difficulty of locating people with no permanent address and different definitions of homelessness. Some federal agencies, for example, do not count people who are living temporarily in hotels or with family or friends. Many researchers say their studies, while generating valuable information for service providers and government, are likely an under-representation of the problem. Compagna, who now works at the NPHY and rents her own apartment, was a so-called "throw-away kid" – a term used by service providers and the federal government to describe young people abandoned or pushed out of the home by their parents. The federal government does not produce an independent count of such people, but rather combines that population with runaways. According to the most recent federal statistics, in 1999 there were an estimated 1.68 million in the overall category. Groups that work with this population say some end up on the streets to escape physical, emotional or sexual abuse. Others might be asked to leave home by an impoverished family to reduce the strain on younger children. Another contributing factor to child homelessness is homophobia in the family. According to data gathered by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Policy Institute, a sizable portion of homeless young people identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). Homeless LGBT youth often face additional hardship – discrimination in the shelter system, in group homes and in foster care, according to the report. Once on the street, young people of all sexual orientations face challenges beyond finding enough to eat and a place to sleep. NPHY’s director of community relations, Larry Lovelett, said they contend with police, thieves and sexual predators. Lovelett, who has done extensive street ou

Old Hope site sold; in line for makeover By David Casey Pawtucket Times | March 24, 2005 The Los Angeles-based company that purchased the six-building, 600,000 square-foot former Hope Webbing mill complex for $2.5 million Wednesday plans to invest an additional $20-$25 million to transform the late 19th century brick-and-timber behemoth into a veritable Greenwich Village. Ron Wierks, the director of operations for Urban Smart Growth’s fast-growing east coast bureau, said the company intends to restore the buildings back to their original condition and fill them with artists – a familiar strategy in Pawtucket. USG, which “takes old mills and under-performing assets and re-develops them into viable assets for the community,” according to Wierks, is artist-friendly Mayor James Doyle’s dream-come-true. For the past seven years, Doyle has courted the state’s arts community, which has been increasingly priced-out of the Providence marketplace. After several successful mill conversions, arts festivals and a truckload of economic outreach, he’s finally managed to fill two city block’s worth of un-taxable tinder at the heart the city’s new 300-acre Arts & Entertainment District with a honeycomb of Bohemian cafes, artist’s lofts, workshops and retailers. “This is the biggest project to hit the City of Pawtucket in the last 50 years,” Doyle told The Times Wednesday. “Nothing even comes close. To see the amount of money they’re putting into this and the scale and quality of this project …this is going to make people who haven’t noticed Pawtucket before, stand up and pay attention. If someone is building a massive project like this here, maybe people will start wondering why.” Doyle knows that buzz begets buzz, and for the better part of the last decade, he’s believed that Pawtucket can achieve economic success by repackaging itself as a trendy, urban outpost. The logic is simple: Artists like mills because they’re affordable and spacious; mills in Providence (just 7 miles away) and Boston (about 45 miles away) are too expensive; and Pawtucket, a depressed mill city straddling Interstate 95, could use the buzz consumer markets artists bring with them. According to Wierks, who is in the process of getting the 600,000-square-foot complex re-zoned from industrial to general commercial (Pawtucket’s Arts and Entertainment District only provides for tax-free art sales), the “Hope Artiste Village” will be a regional commercial-cultural “destination.” All told, the complex will feature boutiques and artists’ galleries, live-work space, apartments, restaurants and cafes, light-industrial space (woodworking, glass-blowing, etc.), an outdoor live music venue in the courtyard, a black-box theater and an executive business center, where out-of-towners can rent fully-equipped office space by the month. The breakdown is roughly: 25-30 percent living space, 40 percent retail, 15 percent office space, 10 percent restaurants and cafes, and 10-15 percent light manufacturing, according to Wierks. Manufacturing units will range from 1,600 to 10,000 square feet, starting at $5 per square foot; live/work units will be around 2,000 square-feet, starting at $5 per square foot; and apartments will range from 700 to 1,400 square-feet, starting at $2 per square foot. And this is no rush-job, according to Wierks, who helped introduce the run-down East Coast mill market to USG’s core market of run-down Art Deco motels and apartment buildings in Southern California. After all, Rhode Island’s generous historical tax credits are the number one reason this nationwide developer chose to base its east coast bureau in little, old Pawtucket. “The basic tax credits in the State of Rhode Island are a tremendous incentive to developers like us,” said Wierks. “That’s what we do – we restore buildings to their original condition. We get the city’s support and all of the exposure, and they get the ambience and people they’re looking for.” As such, floors will be sanded and re-finished, brick and tresses left exposed wherever possible, and windows replaced with stylistically-appropriate facsimiles of their 100-year-old counterparts. And this sort of attention to detail takes time. The entire project is expected to take five years to complete, with buildings 1-6 reaching completion in order of market priority. The Hope Artiste Village will become the fourth east project for USG, which is currently working on the Eagle Square (the former Eastern Butcher Block) project in Providence (144 condo units), Greystone Mill project in North Providence (136 condo units) and a 114-condo complex in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
