    Question. What chance do you give this of succeeding?

    Do you think we'll "end homelessness among some of society's most vulnerable groups within the next decade"?

    I think we could end short-term homelessness to a large degree by providing temporary housing/assistance programs that help people get back on their feet. And, the vast majority of the short-term homeless are made up of the working poor who live paycheck to paycheck and whose lives can be seriously disrupted pretty easily. However, we will probably never end longterm homelessness unless we start institutionalizing the seriously mentally ill again.

    I prefer to brainstorm possible solutions than derail the thread with assumptions that these are Very Bad, Lazy People.

    I left myself logged in while I went and had the most awesomest Thai food ever.

    As to the other things you said, I am with you 100% on the idea of institutionalizing people again...under humane conditions where people can be directed toward something useful.
