We've met so many people who once held good jobs who have been on the streets a long time, senior citizens living on SS and in RV's, people who sleeping in the mountains and coming down the hills to use library computers to look for work. We even know of someone who kept at a job as a secretary while living in a homeless encampment under a bridge. When he employer found out she was canned!
WITHOUT A DOUBT, having a consistent place to live and safely and privately get mail, a place to shower, a place to iron and hang up work wardrobe, a PLACE TO GET A GOOD NIGHT's SLEEP (which usually is not a homeless shelter) are essential to getting and keeping a job, as is training or retraining, having references or meeting people really willing to give a person a fresh start, and so on.
MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE DESTITUTE IN OTHER STATES COME TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, reasoning that maybe they'll get lucky and if not it's relatively warm in the winters.
EVERY STATE and EVERY CITY NEEDS ITS OWN PROGRAMS TO COMBAT POVERTY AND HOMELESSNESS.
So we HOPE TRUMP CAN MAKE ECONOMIC RENEWAL HAPPEN!
SOUNDS GOOD... STRONGEST ECONOMY IN THE WORLD....
