The New York Department of Housing and Urban development should should provide homes to its the homeless population. Old buildings such as warehouses should be converted into housing for the homeless. Homes provide numerous benefits to people but the most imperative thing provided in a home is safety.
The many social and psychological benefits of a home, such as a sense of normalcy and increased self-worth, are considerable. However, safety is still the foremost benefit of a home.
After the need for safety is satisfied, homeless people can receive aid for the other problems they face. Drug rehabilitation, counseling for mental illness, and other forms of homeless aid would become much more effective once a homeless person has a home to live in.
