According to Josh Spring, Executive Director of the Homeless Coalition, the Coalition believes that CUB has been a “model organization.” He says, “They, along with the women who live at the Anna Louise Inn, have signaled to the public that all have the right to be where they chose, that deep-pockets don’t give you the power to control others and that our city benefits from affordable housing.”
