Senator Johnson SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Adriane Johnson is successfully making progress to address homelessness and unnecessary institutionalism with the passing of House Bill 2831 Tuesday.

“Homelessness is an extensive issue in all corners of our state,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “It’s time we take a comprehensive approach to decrease homelessness and improve health and human services for people who experience homelessness.”

House Bill 2831 would create an office within the Department of Human Services tasked with preventing and ending homelessness. The group would create a strategic plan aimed to decrease homelessness and improve health and human services outcomes for people who experience homelessness, and strengthening the safety- nets that contribute to housing stability.

“Far too many of our friends and neighbors are stricken by homelessness – it knows no ZIP code,” said Johnson. “We must uplift those in need while continuing to find the root cause of this epidemic.”

The measure passed the Public Health Committee and now heads to the Senate for further consideration.
