50% of homeless people who call for public help don't get a place. Emergency housing is saturated.
Homeless shelters are often stressful for social workers
and users. A lot of people refuse those structures,
which are not adapted.
Homeless people are minimum two per room in shelters.
They have the choice between being seperated or sleep outside.

homeless people are living. Some people will refuse
shelters in fear of losing their friends and space.
They talk about it better than we can
