We need to make sure "entitlements", such as HUD subsidies,which the conservatives are always trying to get rid of, are absolutely kept in place so the numbers of homeless families does not increase.

Actually, if we are willing to keep printing more money for millionaires and corporations, why not do so to keep people off the streets ?
