What are the bill of rights that they are actually proposing?
Sounds good. I'm curious to see what it says. Obviously, I can't support a freedom that involves a violation of someone else's freedom, but if it passes that rule, I will support it!
I do have the experience of living hand-to-mouth; being a homeless youth; discrimination due to lack of multiple forms of ID and so on. It makes getting out the ditch so much harder, especially when you have "pulled yourself up by the bootstraps" so often that they broke a while back.
I live in CA, and while far from ideal or not as humane as can be, I am watching a friend suffer needlessly in CO where even the usual agencies or methods of getting help are not available. I am suddenly aware...

Chronic homelessness needs to be addressed here as well as catching folks before they fall deeper in the hole because it is so much harder to get back out.
While the housing market has picked up, there are still many properties out there under Bank management from foreclosure.
I would like to see a partnership with Habitat for Humanity and/or other civic groups make a coordinated effort to get people into those homes. They would be paying rent by taking care of the property and maintaining it, reporting anything that is not up to code.
while oversight would be performed by the coalition.
The community would do better:
The neighbors wouldn't have an eyesore or a magnet for mischief and such and their property values would improve.
Me too i have been homeless a couple of times due to various addictons and even worked in a homless shelter so agreed
Los Angeles is the Homeless capitol of the nation, we need to do something right here at home. It is criminal how many people walk the streets un-noticed and uncared for in our country. It could be you out there, then would it matter?
it has been me several times in my life Bill...but always pulled my self back up
I recently became homeless myself, along with my two little baby girls, from August 2012 until 5 days ago. I have much to share on this radical topic. I can tell you one thing: homelessness does not discriminate...I'm far more than just lucky to have this roof above us tonight, cuz I/we almost didn't make it out, much less all together.
it's good to hear from you, glad you are ok...
Also the politically connected should not make people homeless in order to profit off new development projects. Homeless and poor people should also have right to lawyers. Only 1 in 6 people without money can get a lawyer no matter how much they need or deserve legal help.
AND YES, FREE FOOD AND APARTMENT FOR THOSE ON THE STREETS, FIGHTING FOR SURVIVAL EVERY SECOND!
POVERTY SHOULD NOT BE A CRIME. NOW WE MUST END POVERTY TOO!
After Hurricane Sandy, we can all understand homeless
