The article on treating the homeless was very interesting. The author implies that each homeless person needs a knowledgeable and sympathetic advocate, almost like an AA sponsor.
The advocates he has in mind can probably handle only a few homeless clients apiece. Not too many cities can find millions of dollars in their budgets to hire, let’s say, 300 advocates for each 1,000 persons who are homeless.
At the same time, one wonders if the huge expenditures to non-profits in a place like San Francisco would actually cover an advocate’s budget.
