"Minneapolis and Hennepin County are in the fifth year of a decade long initiative to end homelessness" - What a joke. It will work as well as the war against poverty. Many of these people choose to be homeless.

But how many of those then came back into shelter and how much are we going to spend on subsidized housing? Don't we need more jobs that can pay rent amount and more support to keep people who end up in shelters a better skill set to survive in the market? I'm not talking about people with chronic mental health issues.

I notice the young lady featured in this story somehow found enough money to get a tatoo. I hate to sound like a conservative--because I'm ultra-liberal--but the stupid things poor people spend money on just drives me nuts.

typingwords: Couldn't agree with you more however we do not know when she got the tatoo but we do know when she decided the taxpayer could afford to pay her to have a child! This is the perfect reason why we need welfare reform and Planned Parenthood fully funded. I really don't care if it pays for abortion or not I am tired of taxpaying dollars funding someones way of life. If you can't feed it, cloth it and house it, don't breed it!

Only in government is it a "miracle" of success when you plan to eliminate something and yet there is 6.5% more of it now than last year!

What is obvious in north Minneapolis is that property is being bought up by management companies, not humans. Renters are replacing owners, with all the attendant issues coming along. This is what a culture gets when "homes" become "investment properties." I'm certianly glad I was raised in a home, not an investment property. What's it like, growing up in an investment property? It's not anything like growing up in a home. If you think this is just semantics, then you're the fool.
