There are 554,000 homeless people in the United States.

There are 18,600,000 vacant homes in the United States.

The cost to house homeless people is free.

There are 77,000 unused government buildings.

"The cost of providing an apartment and social work for clients in the Housing First program is $11,000 annually, while the average price of hospital visits and jail for street denizens is nearly $17,000 a year."

Even from a purely Capitalist perspective, housing the homeless is a better solution than letting them live on the streets.

It curbs crime and healthcare costs.

It also turns people that would otherwise not contribute to society into possible tax payers.

You actually think showers are expensive?

Large communal showers for multiple people seeing heavy use will need cleaning, maintenance and likely security and insurance.
And I think >>20792 didn't mean cleaning the bodies of the homeless but cleaning after them. Trash, feces, them possibly just wrecking stuff wantonly. It could take 1 homeless asshole out of 100 people sheltered and it could be pretty bad.

I really doubt that most homeless would cause problems. Even if you don't make housing universal right, (which we should and can afford,), landholders could charge just enough money for rent to cover normal wear and tear or damage from a random lunatic. Most goneless in the city make enough money from begging in America that they could afford $150 a month for a safe room to sleep in.

I talk to homeless people when they ask for money and most of them don't sound crazy. They may be somewhat dumb or poorly educated, but most people can't control that. Count the total number of homeless you see in a city and then realize it's only the crazy ones that you tend to remember.

In fact, I think talking to homeless people is just as important as giving them money. Many of them are lonely, disrespected and suffer from depression and low confidence. When I can, I try to treat them out to hamburger restaurants and talk to them like they're equal to me. The conversation is about the same, and it feels much better than treating out my financially set friends who don't appreciate it when I pick up the bill.

Who owns those vacant houses? Giving habitual liars thieves and heroin addicts a free house is to me a plan to take down the communities lowering the quality of life. If a man literally can not afford a bus ticket back home then that is one thing by the 10th day after they have raised enough for 30 bus tickets and they still are begging they are vampirically leeching off of society.Now some of these homes should be given to those whom may have families and are newly homeless without opiate or crack meth addiction let them stay at the home until they get back on their feet. Or put 10 homeless people in 3 or 4 houses. You don't get a free house have a room and share it with 5 other bums and watch as people call that the crackhouse.These people more often then not outnumber the legitimately downtrodden who have a shot of rebuilding the lives. Your simply enabling them to the point they can focus 100 percent of their effort on aquiring heroin. You are fueling the heroin epidemic. Not intentionally but because of its prevelancey That would be bad. How can spics come here with no connections and seem to get a job weed wacking in the morning somewhere. Because they tried to get that job and got it. They don't beg you never see spics begging.

What's the point in letting those houses naturally decay while they stay vaccant? They naturally develop cracks or water damage when he roofs begin to leak and no one is there to see and fix them.

My folks have a house that they just left vacant for almost 40 years. We have another which was left vacant for 20. And another vacant property where a poor squatter literally built a fairly nice cottage with a cement foundation, stones, brick and wood, which we ordered to be demolished, because "Fuck the poor." My Chinese friend also has several empty apartments.

All those places must now be renovated. I don't think crack heads could fuck up a house much more than apathy and capitalism already does. And I think the number of crackheads is greater in your cracked-up mind than in reality.

part of it is just the nature of liability and property in this country. a squatter could probably sue over getting injured due to a decrepit property depending on local or state laws.

That's not why, it's because if they squat on a property for sufficient decades and can prove they did so, then they can file a suit to claim the property to themselves.
