Homeless Shelters Go Unregulated

In Louisville, Kentucky, urban planning professor John Gilderbloom decries the lack of regulations on homeless shelters in the area.

Gilderbloom writes, "No regulation of shelters takes away housing rights of the homeless and hinders the process of getting the homeless back on their feet. Ideally shelter regulations should mandate limits on the size, location, services provided and provide proper assessment of the homeless population. Without regulation, the homeless are just exploited by greedy administrators who care more about maintaining big salaries than covering a payroll for much needed social workers who help the homeless renew their lives."
