It will help those who want to be helped, but the percentage of those is unknown. Those with mental illness and/or drug addictions need help with those issues first before they can appreciate a safer place to live.

As long as they are managed by responsible people to help the people living there.

Absolutely! I do not think people should be allowed to live there for more than a couple of years, until they are on their feet though. They can then move to low income housing, and move up from there. A lot of this is needed, and it works. Look at how much it helped in Utah! It saved a lot of money

Unless you screen them you'll end up with addicts and free loaders instead of people who need and want to be helped to get back on their feet.

As long as we continue to support them they will never get back on their feet and work at many of the 1000's of jobs available out there.

You can't give people anything. They will destroy it because they don't care.

The vast majority of homeless people want to be homeless. It is like a badge of honor for them. The more you do for the homeless the more there will be. The dogooders are creating another society of dependents. How has LBJ's "Great Society" worked out?

It will "help" the parasites who enable the bums by providing them with a permanent income stream.

If your mommy rents out the shed in back of her house trailer she might no longer get Section 8. And where will you sleep if she does?

No

It's not a housing problem. Its a people problem. You can add 500 more places for people to live and 800 people will move here. When the bucket is full of water, quit adding more water.
