Rather; as people leave our institutions: hospitals, boarding homes, prisons, the military, health clinics, jails, or when they age out of foster care, they should be discharged no later than their original outdate into a stable housing environment.

In the embarrassment of the culture we try to blend in, hanging around in libraries, bookstores, parks, etc...
Open your eyes America, that person my not be wearing his or her favorite outfit daily, it may be the only outfit they have. In the semi tropical states this "blending in" is less difficult. Shelters are only a temporary fix, for a permanent problem. The categories of the homeless: 1. Those that choose to be. (self explanatory) 2. Those that are mentally disadvantaged. (again self explanatory) 3. Those that are forced by way of : loss of job/income/professional licenses/etc. and have now been faced with a situation that they have never even considered, or taught about and just have no idea what to do or where to turn, and may be ashamed that they are in this situation. What do I do now,...hopelessness, where should I turn to...lost, how did this happen to me....bewilderment. I need help.
I am committed in supporting this petition. I see homeless vets (men and women with children) on the streets and sometimes just hanging around the VA. I support this cause --Discharge NO ONE into HOMELESSNESS. I am there for my fellow women veterans.
There is a man at the corner of IH 35 and 51st that breaks my heart. He looks like a veteran and should be able to enjoy his old age without having to beg at corners.
