Can Homelessness Be Abolished in Ten Years?

The cost of maintaining a person in homelessness is more expensive than solving his homelessness. Can I spend $35,000–$150,000 per year on emergency rooms, police, fire, public defenders, and so on for a chronically homeless person? Or should I spend $13,000–$25,000 on supportive housing in order to create stability for that person and a trajectory toward self-sufficiency and recovery? You don't have to be Warren Buffett or Suze Orman to figure that out.
