Should the government fund housing for the homeless?

  • The government should fund housing for the homeless

    Government funded housing for the homeless would provide safe places for the homeless to collect themselves and get the help they need to get their lives back together. It would also help keep them in a place they can get mental help services if they need it. Homeless people are almost always good people who need a helping hand.

  • Are you next?

    Sometimes people make bad decisions and sometimes things happen through no fault of their own. It's a pitiful state of mind to not care to help or criticize or hold an innocent family at fault for things that can happen in life. A lot of people are just one paycheck from being in the same positon. Are you next and who do you ask for help if you are.
    How do you justify this government giving away trillions of dollars yearly to foreign countries who could not care less of the well being of America, yet you scoff at the government helping it's own.

  • Not all homeless people are bad

    Not all homeless people are bad, and you can be down on your luck for a while. They not only need a temporary home, but the homes aren't even that good. They should be pushed to find a job, but if you look like a homeless bum, who would hire you?

  • Some homeless don't deserve to be living poorly

    I partly agree that some homeless people deserve the governments support. Some of the homeless out there are living that way because they have some kind of mental illness, they didn't do anything to be homeless. It just happened for them. But some of the homeless out there are homeless for a reason. Maybe they weren't focused on getting a job that much or were doing drugs and alcohol. If the government did help the homeless people that did do something wrong to be homeless, how would you know that homeless person wont go back to their old ways? Some people never learn, but I may be wrong. So, I think the people who have mental illness and didn't do anything wrong to be living poorly, should get healthcare for the government. They deserve the support. I just don't that strongly agree about the ones who did something wrong to be homeless. It was their fault they got into drugs.

  • Yes because there homeless

    Yes because what happens if you were homeless you would be lying there on the streets and you would be on the the streets begging for for a place and food. Wouldn't you be asking for money on the streets if you were homeless. People should have a place to live because there humans to and citizens of the United State.

  • This is what i think

    Those who have been susceptible to violence, ill treatment, verbal and physical abuse, drug and alcohol induced addictions .People who are not in any way shape of form getting the treatments, which most of us take for granted. For example healthcare, education and FOOD. People who are mistreated in society and looked down upon, without people fully understanding the truth to their matters.

    It disgusts me, Instead of our government over spending in the wrong areas and solving one problem while creating more. Let's all do our bit to help the homeless and this is a start.

    It's not a question of helping people help themselves no more but getting people, yes, people, humans, out of a very very bad situation rather than watch them go cold every night and act as if the problem does not exist. Every human deserves the right to there basic humanitarian rights. I'm sickened at how greedy people with so much and, with so little have become. I fear the worst.

  • What if you were homeless?

    I strongly and completely agree. It is true that our government should do all in their power to help those who are homeless. Men and woman who for all reasons have ended up in such situations where they are no longer capable to change, but remain helplessly embodied and wrapped up in there own plagued thoughts. When you walk past homeless some are so lifeless it's as if they have no life, no memories, no existence and they have no more hung onto memories of when they once were a being like you and me.

    How we can value our own self worth and complain about how little we have, bedroom tax, benefits etc, when there are people who are in far worse situations i.E homeless and abused people.

  • Homeless shouldn't get free housing

    Homeless shouldn't get free housing! Money isn't easy!They made a bad choice and then they get a free home?! If they lost all there money and there home, ask a family member if they can stay over until everything is settled. There family members are at different states, ask a friend! We are overwhelmed working to put a roof over our heads and our families. They can relax in a home and not worry about anything. That isn't fair.

  • They would get things handed to them.

    Homeless people should work for them selves in this nation they life is great if you try to work and they would do the wrong things if they do not try they sit at parks looking for hand outs and easy money . Its bad to have children close these disgusting people!

  • No, charities would do a better job.

    No, the government should not fund housing for the homeless, because private organizations would do a better job. With private charities, there is more oversight over the people who receive the funds. If someone is abusing their assistance, they are more likely to catch the abuse and be able to make changes. The government does not run an efficient program.
