We were saddened to hear about the loss of one of the great minds and souls in the struggle to end homelessness in our nation. Bill Hobson, former Executive Director of Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC), passed away. He was a tireless champion for people experiencing homelessness, and we will miss him dearly. Here is a letter from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) to the DESC community expressing our condolences.
