He has helped other cities around the country plan for more affordable housing, and emergency shelters.

Quite bad... they smell.. they are criminals. They are uneducated, drug abusers.
Shame, that's how I feel with society. I'm ashamed. I'm known of those, stereotypes. Educated,.published author, Jackie of all trades. I lost my employer, my home, lived in motels. Told I was neglecting my child, removed said child placed child with father. Who, off he had paid support it wouldn't have been this way.
I've been given awful looks, told I'm a crack prostitute, called names and ran from one city as houselessness (homelessness) is illegal there.
I'm not garbage, I'm not uneducated. I'm jobless, homeless, not a killer. So when you see a vagrant don't assume you know that individuals story. Thanks from me TT Houseless
