All who wander are not lost.
In the same way, all who are homeless are not desiring a home.
Look at it through the eyes of the homeless.
In our eyes, having a place to live and a regular job is desirable. But to be encumbered with the responsibilities of a home and/or a regular job is not everybody's choice.
The long-term homeless live a different lifestyle, and many find it quite comfortable.
The Day Resource Center on East Lancaster Avenue deals with the needs of the homeless very effectively. They are professionals working in the trenches on a daily basis.
They help the homeless find work, get legal papers in order, take a shower, do laundry, get medical help, get counseling, even line up suitable housing, etc. etc.
The goal is to give a caring hand so that the less fortunate can help themselves.
Homelessness is a problem, but I think those close to the homeless housing problem have a better handle on finding a solution.
