160. i empathizes w/your situation but,
what has happened to our mental health system is a sin and a tragedy. i have at least 2 cousins on the street. they have had housing provided for them and they won't stay. perhaps the hospitals were horrible but de-institutionalization w/o housing and without any type of mental health structure was even more cruel and unusual punishment.
i am aware that there are many of folks who are homeless through a series of unfortunate events and that those numbers are going to swell. that these parallel situations exist is beyond horrendous. my prayers go out to you and yours.
