The most visible component of the unsheltered are those with severe mental health and co-occurring disorders. They are not representative of the larger population

@John. Yes. Some of our focus group participants recognized that, but many did not

Deserving / Undeserving stems from "Just Deserts" philosophy; people who have housing feel they deserve to be housed and in a just society only those undeserving would be homeless. It's not an easy task to get entire populations to change their world views.

There is a cost study regarding the cost associated to levels of homeless vs housing, do you think it's possible to correlate this?
Glen Hilton
01:09:47
Yes, this really helps with messaging and where to focus the conversation when talking with community members.

People are upset about what happens without public bathrooms but they don't want to solve the problem!
Glen Hilton
01:12:02
But if we put bathrooms in every neighborhood, people won't have to migrate to use them.

That discrimination currently exists. Many restrooms in downtown San Diego & elsewhere, require a purchase prior to utilization.

Let me expand on my question. We have data to show the cost of different levels of housing solutions. Unsheltered, emergency shelters, transitional housing, rapid resolution, rapid rehousing, and permanent supportive housing interventions. Could this be correlated into neighborhood discussion to support community need. Many are in communities unsheltered because they identify as residence of the community based on community connection.

I concur with Ketra. Community engagement and education is critical.

Those focus groups sound traumatic for researchers!

I'd like to go into bars and other places with unsuspecting members of the public and do myth busting trivia questions for prizes (won't have to give out many prizes since most people will get the questions wrong).
