I would like to say that the solution to helping the homeless is not a shelter of any kind. Shelters are for emergency purposes. Help the homeless by providing homes.
Help the homeless by getting them from the streets or car or from homeless status to a place they can afford. Help them find it, get approved, get there (probably out of area, of course, and state) and help them set up there.
That is the solution. Plus, there is a lot of continuum of care funding from our government to help with this. No more middlemen collecting this money for providing “services.” The homeless can get these services once housed, and they will be somewhere where they are welcomed.
