Growing homeless population and what can we do about it? The other day a woman and her 3 month old infant were beaten in broad daylight by a homeless vagrant. What can we do about it? What laws can the city council enact?

Community outreach. There are many reasons for homelessness. An individual that can have several psycho-social dynamics going on. First things first. Assessing the situation: 1.The size of the homeless population. 2.Educational barriers for eg. reading, writing & language barriers. 3.Physical illness vs mental illness; many physical illnessess like people with untreated diabetes, renal disease, or malnutrition can often appear psychiatrically unstable. 4.Where do you get the funding from: you're trying to reduce violence in your neighborhood, look for State or local grant monies and create a service to provide to these individuals to obtain the supports they need. 1)Nutrition 2)Housing 3)Counseling 4)Education
