The homeless

Having spent years in social work and briefly managed a homeless shelter, I feel we are being misled.  The homeless are portrayed as the ‘nation’s failure’, the ‘disenfranchised’, who were ‘abandoned’ by the economy, ‘never had a chance’, and have ‘fallen out of the mainstream’.  They are ‘victims’ who are owed food, lodging, clothing, and services.

Some are shown on a food line with bizarre mountains of hair and dirty, matted beards.  No one would hire them that way; yet they’re never asked to get a haircut and shave in return for meals and lodging.
