If they want to build it then please let them build it without worrying about it, chances are not much could be done to stop them anyway. Not everyone can afford a luxury home in Hampton Cove and this is not in the actual Hampton Cove subdivision anyway.

Huntsville also has over 500 homeless people and something more needs to be done to help with that too.

Bus tickets to Birmingham would probably be cheaper than running a shelter for a year.

I don't think anyone is "worrying". Macwell keeps up with what is happening with the housing authority and posts updates all the time. What is wrong with that?

Bottom line is the housing authority will issue rent vouchers so people can actually live wherever they want as long as the property owner will accept the voucher.

Even cheaper to stay in all those projects from the sixties up there and under I-565. In the daytime, they can continue to kill the businesses along Hwy 72, except of course for the night jobs at those La Quinta Inn & Outs.

I would suggest giving them a ride to the employment office to get a damn job. If you continue to enable, they will continue to sponge off society. There are third and fourth generations living in the housing projects for crying out loud. There should be about a 2 year time limit to live in these things to get your life in order and get a job.

It's hard for them to get a job when they have no address and no phone number, many homeless are also disabled or mentally ill (granted some are also drug addicts).

I own my home and work hard and have never sponged off society but there are "some" homeless that need true help. And actually, if a homeless person asked me for a ride to the unemployment office I would be glad to take them there (if my vehicle got carjacked I have insurance).

Yes they can....shelters are set up to HELP people find jobs, get into drug addiction programs, etc. and they allow them to use their address/phone in acquiring employment. There are a multitude of programs and non profits in the area for this. Its called being an adult and making choices. DJ's point that you completely missed is that those services are intended to be TEMPORARY, yet many "milk" the system for years because its easier for some to suck the teet of the government than to actually go out and be productive and better themselves....which is why welfare numbers are absolutely thru the roof right now. Welfare was once intended to be a "hand up"....now it is a long term "hand out".

Then of course, there is the stereotype that they are all criminals, as seen in your above post.

There are also disabled people that work, everyday, in a multitude of different industries. In fact, there are federal laws that prohibit employers from discriminating based on disability.
