I'm not impressed with this article and what's the difference between homeless and unshelterd? Are they counting the people how choose to be homeless. IF they do I think it changes the result. Homeless people are people who have lost their home to an unfortunate event. Not the people who have lived by the railrod tracks for year. I'm glad there is help for those who are really homeless but it shouldn't go to those who don't want a home. WASTED TAXES WASTE.
Sad situation

"...what's the difference between homeless and unshelterd?"

Sounds to me like:

Homeless - lost their home, stay at shelter whenever possible

Unsheltered - No home and no shelter available

i liv in woodland and i rarely see homeless people whch makes me feel worse when i do. I went out of town and saw a guy with a deformed hand. i wanted to help hi but i couldn't. something held me back but not his deformities. i felt like i couldn't help but i had food that i was shoveling in. i didn't give it to him and i feel uber bad. but i couldn't. ifelt like if i did the person in the car who is older than me, in charge, of me, adn got me the food in the first place would kick my butt. i was afraid and fears whats stopping us from helping the homeless. they need to be helped and not shoved away no matter how scary they look. Are you gonna stand by as these HUMAN BEINGS get pushed away or are you gonna stand by them? hope you made a better choice then i did today but someday i will make it right
