How about instead of a health and housing center we find apartments for the up to 130 people who would otherwise be staying in a new emergency homeless complex? The troubled souls who can't manage their own shelter for one reason or another could be found places to live all around town, a few here, a few there, maybe 13 in each ward. Each of those formerly homeless would be better off not having to live under the same roof with 129 other troubled souls. Caring landlords, churches and other compassionate people could help manage a few here and few there. Those who used to say "not in my backyard" would be replaced with folks saying, "I can help a few in my backyard."
