133. You are absolutely right.
Without jobs, all the housing in the world isn't gonna help! And I can imagine that temporary homelessness becomes permanent homelessness rather quickly. It's a huge capitalist "gotcha game" out there..... lose a job or take a pay cut, fall behind on your bills. Continued unemployment or underemployment likely means you'll lose your home (house or apartment). Now your credit is shot, and in this lovely game, you can get neither decent housing OR a job! GOTCHA!!!!!

It's all a vicious cycle. Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? You really can't fix one problem and continue to ignore the other.

I believe that you are right when you state that things are gonna get worse before they get better. The fallout from the massive job losses from 2008 is just beginning....
