There are not that many of them.
Are you anticipating more "clients" for Inn from the cold?
Of course that's always a possibility given how much the city
is kissing their arse.

And hope the percentage numbers level out sometime. Social ills in our faces as time goes by which get ignored, come knocking again with vengeance.

Perhaps this is a case where choices need to be laid out before those affected.
Homeless and unable to provide for yourself?
Choose one:

1.) Attend federally funded, standardized workshops to teach basic skills that can be transferred to job actions as well as self sustenance. These workshops provide a service to the greater good, aimed toward the betterment of our society. Everything from roadside cleanup, to infrastructure maintenance (shoveling walks, sweeping curb-sides, painting picnic tables, park benches, etc.. Upon graduation from your workshop(s), and after completion of whatever mental health work is required to instill a value system conducive to contributing rather than abusing this social system, the subject can then be provided with employment in any of the many positions available in our progressive society.

2.) Live a life of self sustenance beyond the social structures and infrastructures provided by a culture and greater community that you clearly choose to live outside of. Learn to provide for yourself and live a life of separation, solitude and celebrate your individuality around the fire you've made to cook your food and heat your hut.

I've often if not always said that I have no issues with people choosing to be homeless.
I've got no issues with people that choose to turn their back on this toxic society.
I have many issues with those who make such choices, then expect the very society they choose to abandon to support them with housing, clothing, food, and running water.
Birds kick their offspring out of the nest.
They fly on their own or they don't fly at all.
Wolves will attack their offspring and create a threat to encourage them to leave. They either fend for themselves, or they don't survive.
Parents of offspring with little to no ambition often face having to force them to leave the home in order to find their way into providing for themselves in this society.
Perhaps it's time for that very society to kick the entitled out, so they can either learn to fend for themselves, or accept that a level of conformity is a better way to exist than eating bark and bugs.

Inn From the Cold serves only to entitle the entitled.
It is an organization that is based on enabling those who choose a negative lifestyle to foster and fester within our communities.
Inn From the Cold and other so called non-profit organizations do in fact make a profit. The difference is that their funding gets doled out to the employee's wages rather than reinvested into the company. So long as the company shows no profit, those that work the system can continue to collect "healthy" paycheques as they bolster their supposed intentions under the guise of helping the less fortunate. I call BS.

I'd side with shutting down these entities of entitled enablers in trade for a two choice system.
1.) Get a life.
or
2.) Get out.
