is. In Duluth, there are many people you see sleeping downtown or in canal. Out of all of the

financial disasters our taxes our dedicated to like working on our roads, or military, we should

spend some on investing it in our on people! (Known that they are different in Federal/City)

Instead of a shelter they can stay for a night or two though. A shelter they can get back up on their

feet. Stay there, work a job, the shelter takes 5"10% for living expenses and next thing you know it

they are on their feet. Not only are they on their feet they are back spending money in our

economy. Duluth, Minnesota has a place called the Graffiti Graveyard. They had installed fences

so people couldn't go inside of it and spray paint beneath the highway anymore. Known by the city

there were a group of homeless folks living down there. This had frustrated me because I'm sure

they had just kicked them out without giving them an alternate place to stay. Underneath the

highway had perfect block from the wind in cold Minnesota winters. All in all, I think homeless

shelters are a great idea if used properly. It would return greatly and give people another shot at



with 2469501 cities in the world it would be impossible for a homeless shelter in every city. source:

My opponent seems to be too busy trying to build homeless shelters in every city in the world. But he will take too long.
