Questions About Homelessness

I'm in favor of a hand up as opposed to a long term hand out, but the proposed cuts feel more like kicking someone when they are down. I cannot support that. Cutting services to people in need hurts us all.

Why are we not identifying vacant buildings in every city and every neighborhood, and pooling our resources to house our fellow citizens in need? If you own a building and it lies vacant and in disrepair, sell it to a non-profit who can put it to constructive use.

We have enough collective wealth and wisdom to solve these societal challenges. We can do better.
