No housing for anyone right now

Brittany Plucas, 29, and her boyfriend will likely sleep in her car when they have to leave the Hilltop Inn on the first of June. The couple both work at a nearby restaurant, and have recently picked up second jobs at the hotel. A month ago, Plucas says she became homeless for the first time in her life. “There’s just no housing,” she said, sitting in a room just off the well-worn hotel’s lobby, now a makeshift office for shelter workers. “The shelters are full, there’s no housing for anyone right now,” Plucas said.  Gov. Phil Scott says “It’s costing a lot of money and we don’t have the federal money that we’ve been benefiting from over the last two, three years — nor is it good for those participating.”
