Large decrease in chronic homelessness in past decade
Its good to see that Utah is adopting the basic tenants of the Common Ground
movement.The concept started in New York City, and uses tax payer
money to provide housing and other services to the chronically homeless. The total cost to the community is decreased because once people have
housing it can be the springboard for ending addiction, finding a job, and
dealing with medical problems.It nice to see Utah has the common
sense to adopt a socialist style program to redistribute tax payer wealth to our
neediest citizens. It really seems to be working!
This is socialism! If the poor choose to be homeless then we should let them
be!The poor are only poor cuz they choose to be so!
@freedomfighter I really really hope you are trying to be sarcastic.
Great to hear about this program! It has really saddened me to see the many
homeless we do have!
Freedom Fighter... I to hope you are being sarcastic. I lived with my family for
4 months in our Suburban truck due to lack of money. I had just finished my
masters degree, even had a job but could still not afford housing. We were
eventually able to secure a gov. loan to get into a house, which I am so
thankful for. 10 years later we are still living in and paying off that house.
Making judgments of why people are homeless helps no one... we need to be giving
and as Christ said, "turn not the beggar away." No one should ever be
living on the street... lets help them up, not down.
