"Homeless shelters, affordable housing, help with giving up drugs"

They don't want to give up drugs. Shelters don't work because they often have rules. Like 'No drugs'. And in dormitory-like shelters, the people who most want to avoid heroin addicts are other heroin addicts. They steal from each other and get into bum fights.

Tiny housing works to a point if it's what's known as 'wet housing'. But most neighborhoods don't want that nearby.
