"How To Curb Chronic Homelessness? First, A Home!!!...................."

Good Evening; 
Another link, this time from the Christian Science Monitor;
making the point that really should have been obvious from the get go...

It's not rocket science....
Put a permanent roof over a chronic homeless person's head and both willingness and ability to resolve the underlying issues becomes greater by an order of magnitude....thereby increasing the odds of employability, and stability, while decreasing the time that said person need rely on public and/or private charity/assistance/welfare.
(And of course it is a given that there are those whose illnesses and disabilities are so severe that these models don't apply....they are not the subject here.)

Anyway, at least the reports and conclusions are beginning to reach mainstream media, and not just specialized sites with a limited audience where it is, as they say, 'just preaching to the choir'.

Later..........................Dave
