Evanston ‘mean’ to homeless

A new report from an advocacy group, the National Coalition for the Homeless, says Evanston failed to make the cut to be in its list of the 20 meanest cities toward the homeless.

Chicago was ranked 12th meanest, while Sarasota, Fla., was labeled the meanest in the land.

However the coalition does mention Evanston’s poster campaign to discourage panhandling in a list of actions it doesn’t like taken by 75 other towns across the country last year.
