Thank you for talking about the small house on December 12th. Building a small house for the homeless is a very poor and limited solution. You need to provide a real substantive building to house them. This will be a dorm-style home from either a reused underutilized structure or a new building.
These should include, as needed, a privacy-preserving cafeteria, lounge area, service center, or shared space to meet the needs of a unique individual with unique needs. The homeless themselves can encourage and support these buildings to manage and operate them with some allowance or payment to provide maintenance and school lunch services.
Money for this must come from the federal government. The city’s budget is overweight and cannot be achieved. As we see, the federal budget is more flexible within limits due to its ability to influence the money supply. Citizens can request, but the city budget cannot be provided except in very limited and inadequate ways. Therefore, the problem of the homeless continues every year, severely undermining our moral and social goals and limiting our imagination.
