There is an active campaign for more restrooms throughout the city. Right now we are spending 6.8 million a year to sterilize our sidewalks with bleach.
It is not just independence. Many rules & attitudes from staff at shelters are draconian as well as This is the way We (the shelters) do things, if you don't like it, leave. They also look for ways to disengage the clients. Having a vehicle does give an unsheltered person wider range to seek supplies & services. However, if one can not work, there is now assistance in fuel acquisition.
apologies if I missed it, did any of the participants with cars use safe parking lots? if not, any ideas as to why not? (nothing local, didn't like them, etc)
Do you see qualitative differences between different demographics or sub-populations within the houseless population in terms of their utilization of space, ability to take advantage of resources, problem-solve, etc.?
To Dr. Nations: one challenge w Safe Parking Lots is the trend to have narrow ingress & egress time windows. One has to depart at 0600-0700 and can not arrive in the evening before 1800 but can not arrive after 2100.
One thing to consider with regards to the range, is imagine packing up your home & taking it with you everyday. How far can you carry it all?
It is also a self preservation measure to Not be blamed for the refuse.
For a supportive services provider who sees clients on a limited basis, this is a really great way to see what goes on in someone's day after they come utilize your service for a short period of time then leave to go do whatevers next in the day. We just get a small glimpse of their day but 24 hours is a long time when you don't have your own private space to just be and be safe
Concur Professor. A Leg up is what many need.
The "Tours" are also a byproduct of law enforcement encouraging "Move along" encounters
