As we saw in Connecticut, the government will buy residential property to be used by private contractors. All homeowners need to be protected against a government body using the right of eminent domain for the profit of developers. It is especially necessary for the elderly and the working poor. who could be forced out of their homes.
Establish local "Food Exchanges" in all towns and cities in America. In a Food Exchange, local stores donate any outdated items that would otherwise be destroyed but are perfectly fine to eat. Local farms, ranches, farmers can also donate produce. Once per week all food gets collected and redistributed to feed all those in need in the community. Very easy to set up, organize, and run, and it benefits so many people.
Set up permanent shelters for the homeless where they can stay 24/7 and receive services they need to get back on their feet. Taking people in for the night and then sending them back on the street in the morning is a waste of time and energy. This would break the cycle of poverty and add stability to their lives. The seriously mentally ill should be cared for appropriately and separated from the other folks. Addicts should get counseling and medical help. This will reduce panhandling too.
Lets pass a final law allowing, with or without assistance,the right to die if you are critically ill and/or are suffering with no end in sight. Lets not force suffering on our people. We have a right to die with dignity. (this has nothing to do with any religious belief, it is about living well and/or dying with dignity only)
Provide basic housing for homeless people. It could consist of a private room and bath with shared cooking and eating facilities. Include heat, parking for cars and bicycles, A/C, electricity, shared laundry facilities and food to prepare community meals. Units should be close enough to town so that people living there can walk to jobs, ride bicycles or use public transportation. Every person deserves food and shelter. Everyone living there would be expected to help take care of the building.
