Garcetti shifts stance, won’t enforce tough new homeless measures – LA Times

The general public believes that the solution for the homeless is finding them homes. But in reality what constitutes a home? Many times people are given a roof over the head, but very little else. You couple that with they’re losing the community that they have learned to live with and rely upon is a recipe for disaster. Putting a roof over someone without giving them the necessary skill sets and the everyday necessities like a bed chairs cooking utensils plates is not a home. so thinking that putting a roof over someone’s head is all we need to do is wishful thinking. Is wishful thinking . This must be a holistic approach that takes in mind albany to be in the vigil has a transition into permanent housing. I applaud Mayor  Garcetti for his courageous move.
