Isaac Hoffman on where we’re at with La Crosse’s homeless plan



Isaac Hoffman, director of the La Crosse Area Family Collaborative, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on June 6, 2024.

Isaac Hoffman, the La Crosse Area Family Collaborative director, in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM last Thursday updating us on the city-county plan to end homelessness, a project called Pathways Home.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.

We make the distinction early, but Hoffman, who works with the county, is part of the long-term plan combatting homelessness, which is a separate entity to what the city is currently doing, having public meetings over camping bans.

Throughout the show, we discuss how unique La Crosse is with homelessness, what stage we’re at with Pathways Home — counting and categorizing — why we’re doing that, plus who will be prioritized throughout the project and the hurdles the plan has to overcome.

    Briefly stated, there has been no measurable progress on the homeless issue (duh!) but the Homeless Industrial Complex is bigger and better and more expensive than ever!

    And no, we don’t want to talk about the availability of drugs as the root cause. It’s much too complicated because each homeless person is an individual with an individual story.

    How many drug overdose deaths in 2023 and 2024 to-date? No one seems to know.
