    What was missing were the incredibly high instances of mental illness affecting the homeless.

    While some folks “fall on bad times” or are victims of bad fortune, many just suffer from mental illness and can’t/won’t accept help when it’s offered.

    No amount of money will ever help someone who doesn’t want help.

      So, you’re appealing to the Nirvana Fallacy? If we can’t fix their mental problems because they don’t want help, what’s the point of giving them shelter and food… is THAT your point? You can ALWAYS help someone. Maybe not the way you want to help them, but that rather makes it about what YOU want to see happen, and not really about helping someone else.
