Amazon and Seattle show America how its done:

[Homelessness leads to helplessness and there's an epidemic of homelessness in the United States. Seattle is working with corporations to find a real answer to the problem and things seem to be working well. Good for them. They are showing us the way.]

Utah reduced chronic homelessness by 91%
i've often wondered why more governors haven't done what Utah's done.

Re: Amazon and Seattle show America how its done:


According to what I've Portland has one of the largest homeless, homeless mentally ill, runaways and drug addicts in the nation for a smaller city. The City Council has approved buying a building, looking for a warehouse to renovate to house up to 400. It's a start and the taxpayers are paying.

Miami is very bad for homelessness. People sleeping in alleyways, on sidewalks, on the beaches. Such wealth and poverty side by side.

Re: Amazon and Seattle show America how its done:


Have been many homeless shelters in St. Louis including the rev, Larry Rice where they accept donations to feed, clothe and house many, but so many refuse to overnight INSIDE, they feel they cannot be secure with so many so close(paranoia) and seek out shelters away from others. Schizophrenics tend to be loners where they do not accept being too close to anyone so that is a lost cause for keeping them off streets. Drugs abusers seek out other abusers and settle into 'settlements' around Missouri, they congregate in abandoned buildings in larger metros where they can exact their need without scrutiny or so they think. Again is a lost cause setting up shelters as they most times will not utilize.

Re: Amazon and Seattle show America how its done:


Portland has to turn away many homeless at shelters, every evening especially in cold weather. Schizophrenics should not be on the street at all. There is something you can do, there must be, in London in 2014 742 persons were reported by the council as living on the streets with a population of almost 9 million, Portland has around 4,000 sleeping on the streets with a population of around 630,000, so you can't tell me it is a lost cause, it is a cause with to many with the wrong attitude.

You can lead a horse to water but you cannot force it to drink comes to mind. You cannot be protector to those that will not accept it. You cannot protect everyone at the same or even reduced levels, the City of Portland has garages, has facilities, does not have to be or required to be a 'Housing' space to shelter the indigent from severe weather that is IF they really want to help make EVERY available Heated structure available. Do not have to turn ANY away at that level.

Re: Amazon and Seattle show America how its done:


Obviously those in London must be extremely different as to who they are as people, their ability seems to be they can lead the horse to water and drink. As I said, lousy attitude, add excuses and a severe issue with where those with that attitude want to put their money that they pay in taxes. You don't see homelessness making the top 20 of political concerns in the nation. It's always about the money and certain attitudes have not passed me by as to it's their own fault, bunch of losers, bunch of druggies and crazies, most want to be there or you can't force [sign in to see URL] we can get many people off the street, if we really wanted to.

Re: Amazon and Seattle show America how its done:


I would look to less political and more disconnected parties for levels of actual participation by the homeless. City officials tend to dramatize and exaggerate figures to show better quality for the effort placed.

St. Louis city claims less than 40% of the considered number of homeless persons living within the city based on head counts of private concerned citizens.

A blindered eye counts only what it needs to see.
