The above link is an interesting idea from Utah.
Since 2005,Utah decided to give the homeless homes. Studies showed that the costs for E.R visits and jail stays for homeless people was about $16,670 per person. Giving them an apartment and social worker costs $11,000.
Apparently the idea has worked. It has reduced homelessness by 78%. A huge step when your goal is to end homelessness by 2015. As a matter of fact, other states are adopting this idea.
But, do you really think this idea would work? It seems simple. As a matter or fact, there was a thought of this idea in Calgary. There were some concerns.
Do you think this works?
