Re: That's some seriously hard of thinking
"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.
