I just finished receiving the "A Home for Every American" award from the Interagency Council for Homelessness - this is a Council that brings together different US Cabinet agencies responsible for providing Federal leadership for activities to assist homeless families and individuals.

The Council’s “A Home for Every American” Award recognizes the political leadership, success in partnership, innovation in initiatives, and results in reducing homelessness in American communities.

Since I took office, we have reduced homlessness in Miami by over 50% and we will not stop working until every chronic homeless person has a place to call home.
