Code Blue and the Impact on Homelessness in Ithaca

In New York State, Code Blue is in effect anytime the temperature reaches 32 degrees or lower. December 1st through April 15th is considered a mandatory Code Blue period. During these months, people who are unhoused can be certain they will have a safe and free place to escape the elements. However, with the mandatory code blue period now ending, homeless individuals must now find other arrangements. St. John's Community Services Program Supervisor, Chris Teitelbaum discusses  what homelessness looks like after Code Blue and the draw backs to the state mandate.
