Pleased to work with  @Rep. Chip Roy toward results for America's most vulnerable.

Had a great meeting with  @Ben Carson this morning. We discussed robust options to combat homelessness and put the homeless on a path towards independence. Under Sec. Carson, HUD is doing some amazing work. Happy to work together in the near future!  #TX21

If we look at the facts and not focus on ideology, there is no question we can solve the homelessness problem.

Great joining @DavidAsmanfox on @FoxBusiness tonight to discuss how we can work together to come up with solutions to this crisis.

Thanks to  @President Trump our nation is experiencing a historic economic boom & the results of  @CEA's annual report confirms this. We must continue to remove regulatory barriers & ensure hardworking Americans stay on the pathway of success. At HUD, this remains our mission.

Under  @Donald J. Trump, the American economy is unquestionably the strongest in the developed world https://www.whitehouse.gov/articles/trump-bump-real/

Great progress being made with  #OpportunityZones.

We had a great Opp. Zone tour and gathering with the team in Coatesville, PA. The local leadership, community and private sector working together for true revitalization!

Thank you Arnold, very nice.

Everyone knows  @Donald J. Trump & I have our disagreements. But I want to thank you for sending  @Ben Carson to our homelessness summit. We’ll only solve this if everyone works together. This issue is bigger than all of us. Now it’s time for action https://priceschool.usc.edu/homelessness-live-webstream/

I was pleased to speak at the “Unhoused” conference in LA. Everyone here cares deeply about housing the unhoused. And while there may be several schools of thought about the best way to make that happen, we all agree the best solutions minimize division & maximize compassion.

No young person who grows up in foster care should experience homelessness once they set out on their own. I’m thrilled  @HUDgov could play a role in making a difference in the lives of former foster youth.

@HUDgov @SecretaryCarson “Of all the years we've been meeting with HUD, Secretary Carson was the first sitting secretary…that sat down & had an honest conversation with us," says former foster youth @Jamole_Callahan. The FYI program was enacted just 4 months later
