The Solution for Homelessness? Homes.
Peirce writes, "It's a myth, says [Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun] Donovan, that anyone wants to be homeless. Providing people with all manner of fragmented services–overnight shelter, substance abuse, social and mental health and emergency medical services–easily runs up massive public costs. But the sum total of all the programs is appallingly ineffective because it doesn't give the homeless a place to live."
