If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Build and/or fix old buildings for homeless shelters and safe houses. I would have so many that they would have extra rooms available for future needs. Make sure the homeless had proper medical care. Give homeless a free P.O. Box for being able to get Social Secrity Checks and Veteran Checks, ect. Give them free counseling for mental health and adiction problems. Have class rooms built for homeless adult education. Try to help homeless families to stay together with family living areas. Offer better ways to keep parents and children of domistic violance to not have to be split up in to differant shelters.
