Fair question, I suppose. But, that means someone has to provide a home for those who will not or can not provide one for themselves.

I think most of us are sympathetic to those who can not provide for themselves and believe we should offer help in one form or another.

What of those who will not provide themselves a home, either by intentional choice or unintentional choice? I mean people can choose to be homeless, some enjoy the freedom/lack of responsibility that lifestyle offers. Or choose, indirectly, through a series of decisions which result in them being homeless....not developing marketable skills, not holding down a reasonable job, not following rules of the shelters, etc, maybe they don't want to be homeless, but have just refused to do what is necessary to obtain a home.
