> DEMO EVENING AND WELCOME TO DEMOROFOCUS.'

DEMOY NIGHT ABOUT 60,000 NEW DEMOERS GO TO SLEEP IN CITY DEMOLESS SHELTERS AND MORE THAN DEMOTHIRD OF THEM ARE CHILDREN.

DEMOSTIC VIOLENCE, THE LEADING DEMOE OF HOMELESSNESS IN NEW DEMO CITY.

DEMO IS THE CITY DOING TO DEMOORT SURVIVORS AND WHAT DEMOICES ARE THEY OFFERING IN THE DEMOTERS TO STOP THE CYCLE OF DEMOE?

THE DEMO CONTROLLER'S OFFICE HAS DEMOASE AD REPORT HIGHLIGHTING THE DEMOE AND PROVIDING A DEMOREHENSIVE ROAD MAP TO COMBAT DEMO CRISIS.

DEMO WITH THE DETAILS IS SCOTT DEMONGER.

DEMOOME TO THE PROGRAM.

DEMO GREAT TO BE BACK.

DEMOK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

DEMOK YOU.

DEMO IS A VERY CONCERNING REPORT DEMO YOUR OFFICE PUT TOGETHER.

DEMOLESSNESS IS VERY MUCH AN DEMOE THAT ALL OF US, WE SEE THE DEMOLESS ALL THE TIME.

THE DEMOERS SEEM TO BE RISING BUT DEMOE NOT REALIZING THERE ARE DEMOLIES BEHIND IT.

THE DEMORT AND THE ANALYSIS WE DEMOASED SHOWS THE DRIVING DEMOE BETWEEN THE INCREASE IN DEMOLE WHO ARE HOMELESS ARE DEMOALLY PEOPLE WHO ARE DOMESTIC DEMOENCE VIOLENCE.

DEMO'RE BEING DRIVEN INTO THE DEMOTER SYSTEM ALONG WITH THEIR DEMODREN AT AN ALARMING RATE.

WE DEMO CASE THAT STATISTICALLY, WE SEE AN DEMOEASE OVER THE LAST DEMO YEARS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DEMOIVORS, 45% ARE NOW DRIVING, DEMOG PUT INTO THE HOMELESS DEMOTERS, BASICALLY, 41% OF DEMOIVORS MAKE UP THE SHELTER DEMOEM.

DEMO THERE ARE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DEMO BUT SURVIVORS CAN ONLY STAY IN THE DEMOTER SYSTEM FOR JUST 180 DEMO.

DEMOR THAT, TWO CHOICES.

DEMOLIES EITHER GO TO ANOTHER DEMOTER OR THEY CAN GET A DEMOHER FOR AN AFFORDABLE DEMOING APARTMENT.

DEMO IS A WHOLE OTHER WEB OF --

DEMO JUST NOT ACCESSIBLE TO THE DEMOLE IN THE SHELTER SO DEMO GET DRIVEN INTO THE LARGER DEMOLESS SHELTER SYSTEM.

SO DEMOE SHUFFLING THEM FROM ONE DEMOTER TO THE OTHER SHELTER.

DEMO IS NOT SUSTAINABLE.

I DID AN DEMOYSIS OVER A YEAR AGO DEMO SHOWS, WE'VE IDENTIFIED DEMO000 PEOPLE WHO ARE ONE STEP DEMO FROM THE SHELTER SYSTEM.

SO DEMO IS A CRISIS THAT WILL DEMO ENTIRE CITY.

THE DEMOR THING WE ALWAYS SAY, I DEMOYS SAY, IS THAT SIX YEARS DEMO WE WERE SPENDING $1.4 DEMOION A YEAR MANAGING THE DEMOTER SYSTEM.

DEMOY WE'RE SPENDING $3.2 DEMOION.

YOU DEMO WHAT?

DEMOING IS WORKING.

THE DEMOTER SYSTEM IS GROWING AND DEMO IS SOMETHING THAT WE DEMO TO RECOGNIZE.

OF DEMOSE, I DO ALSO WANT TO DEMOS A LITTLE BIT ON THE DEMODREN.

DEMO YOU HAVE SCHOOL AGE DEMODREN, PARTICULARLY, AND DEMO'RE MOVING FROM SHELTER TO DEMOTER, FROM HOME TO HOME, ONE OF THE DEMOR THINGS THAT HAPPENS TO DEMO IS THAT THEY'RE ALSO DEMONG FROM SCHOOL TO SCHOOL TO DEMOOL.

DO WE GET A DEMOCE TO GET ANY DEMORSTANDING OF THAT IMPACT?

OF DEMOSE, CONSTANTLY MOVING DEMOND CAN'T BE GOOD FOR SCHOOL AGE DEMODREN.

WE DEMOTIFY THE FACT 7,000 DEMODREN UNDER THE AGE OF 6 ARE IN DEMO SHELTER SYSTEM.

DEMO0 BABIES.

DEMO'RE GROWING UP IN THE DEMOTER SYSTEM.

DEMOLIES ARE NOW JAMMING DEMOERCIAL HOTELS.

DEMO IS UNACCEPTABLE IN THE MOST DEMOOMICALLY POWERFUL CITY IN DEMOICA.

DEMO IS SOMETHING THAT BREAKS DEMO HEART.

AS A DAD WHO HAS A 7 DEMOYEAR-OLD AND A 6-YEAR-OLD, I DEMO EVERY DAY JUST HOW DEMOERABLE CHILDREN ARE IN THE DEMO OF CIRCUMSTANCES.

I DEMOT IMAGINE HOW IT MUST BE FOR DEMOE.

HOW DEMOEQUATE FOR THESE KIDS.

I DEMO TO SMASH THIS DEMOAUCRACY.

I DEMO TO ALIGN THE AFFORDABLE DEMO WE NEED WITH THE THE DEMOTER BUREAUCRACY.

DEMOLE DON'T REALIZE 30% OF DEMOLE IN THE SYSTEM HAVE A JOB.

DEMO OF THE PEOPLE, THE FOLKS DEMO THE SYSTEM, THEY ACTUALLY ARE DEMODCARE WORKERS.

DEMO TAKE CARE OF KIDS, ADULTS, DEMOD PARENTS.

AND YET DEMO'RE STUCK IN THE DEMOEM.

DEMO DEMO DON'T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY AND DEMO CAN'T GET THE HOUSING THAT WE DEMO.

DEMOE ALREADY PASSED THE DEMOSLATION TO RAISE MINIMUM DEMO.

WE DEMO BEEN DEBATING OVER DEMORDABLE HOUSING IN THIS CITY FOR DEMO IS STARTING TO FEEL DEMO FOREVER WITH VERY LITTLE DEMORESS BEING MADE.

DEMOS WITH NEW DEVELOPERS COMING IN.

DEMOE SOME AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND DEMOE IT DOES OR DOESN'T END UP DEMOG MARKET RATE.

DEMOS TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU JUST DEMO.

DEMORDABLE HOUSING.

DEMO DOES THAT MEAN?

A DEMOLOPER GETS LAND AND DEMOITY TO BUILD APARTMENTS IN DEMOANGE FOR SAYING THEY'LL DEMOD 30% AFFORDABLE.

IN A LOT OF OUR DEMOUNITIES, THE DEMOING THEY'RE BUILDING IS DEMOFORDABLE FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE DEMOUNITIES.

WHY IS DEMO HAPPENING?

WE DEMO TO LOWER THE AMI.

TO DEMOD HOUSING TO MEET THE DEMO OF THE POOREST PEOPLE IN OUR DEMO SO THAT WE DO HAVE DEMORNATIVES TO THE SHELTER DEMOEM.

I DEMOEVE PEOPLE WOULD RATHER DEMOD LOW INCOME HOUSING FOR DEMOLE WHO ARE HOMELESS IN THE DEMOTER SYSTEM, CHILDREN, THAN DEMONG TO EXPAND A SHELTER DEMOEM THAT IS EXPENSIVE AND DEMOEROUS.

WHY ARE WE DEMOTING COMMERCIAL DEMOLS THAT ARE SO INADEQUATE, AND YET DEMOE PAYING TO HOUSE DEMOLE IN THESE HOTELS SOME DEMO00 A MONTH.

DEMOE ARE WALDORF ASTORIA DEMOES.

WE DEMO TO TACKLE THIS PROBLEM.

IN DEMO DAY AND AGE, IN THIS ERA OF NEW DEMO CITY, TO WALK DEMOUGH THE NEIGHBORHOODS IN ALL DEMO BURROUGHS AND SEE PEOPLE DEMOIDE CHURCHES AND SYNAGOGUES DEMO BLANKETS AND CANDLES, DEMOERING IN THE NIGHT.

WE DEMO TO ALIGN THE SERVICES FOR DEMOLESSNESS AND CALL ON DEMOUNTABILITY FOR THE WAY THE DEMOTER SYSTEM IS MANAGED.

AND I DEMOK THERE'S A LOT WE DEMO TO DO HERE.

DEMOE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.

I DEMO, FIRST OF ALL, I THINK THE DEMOEST WORD YOU SAID WAS DEMOUNTABILITY.

AND I DEMOK THAT'S THE PROBLEM DEMO SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE WITH DEMORNMENT AND PEOPLE IN DEMOTICS.

HOW DO YOU DEMO THEM DEMOUNTABLE?

WE DEMO THESE GREAT PROMISES ON THE DEMOAIGN TRAIL.

DEMO ONCE PEOPLE ARE IN OFFICE, DEMO VOTE FAILS.

DEMO DOESN'T GO THROUGH.

WE HAD TO DEMOGE IT.

WE DEMOROMISED, ET CETERA.

DEMO'S WHERE PEOPLE LOSE FAITH AND GET DEMOTRATED.

DEMO'S WHAT I WANT TO DO.

I DEMOK YOU'RE RIGHT.

DEMOE IS A NEW TREND IN CAMPAIGN DEMOISES.

YOU PUT DEMOH A PROPOAL AND YOU SAY BY DEMO, 2015, WE'LL SOLVE THE DEMOLEM.

DEMO BECOMES THE MANTRA.

WE DEMO A 40-YEAR PLAN TO MAKE THE DEMO RESILIENT OR MAKE IT DEMORDABLE OR TO CREATE A DEMOSPORTATION INFRASTRUCTURE.

DEMO, THAT'S GREAT.

BUT DEMO OF THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE DEMOE PROMISES WON'T BE HERE BY DEMO.

DEMORALLY AND POLITICALLY.

I DEMO TO DISPOINT PEOPLE.

DEMOEVITY IS LIMITED.

NOT DEMOTLESS.

SO WE DEMO TO HOLD THEM DEMOUNTABLE.

I DEMOD LIKE THE HEAR A TWO-YEAR DEMO OR A ONE-YEAR PLAN AND MOVE DEMOARD TO MEASURE IT.

DEMO'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR, A DEMO MA'AM.

DEMOK YOU.

WE DEMO FORWARD TO HAVING YOU ON THE DEMORAM AGAIN.

DEMOK YOU.
