They may be mentally ill or unemployed but treating people like human beings is critical to fighting the problem!

Providing homes for the homeless is the first step in breaking the cycle - as long as there is adequate assistance to maintain and stabilize.

No one should ever be homeless. At least a dang cover over their heads!

Good point Cal, Thanks for the posting. Hope some people work with people along side people who are homeless to get each man, women, and child a decent home and meaningful work.

An interesting example that when motivated, opposite political positions can accomplish good things. Lets build on this.

Everybody deserves to have a roof over their heads, plain and simple. I only wish the problem of homelessness could be eradicated worldwide.
