An Upgrade for the Homeless

There are some inspiring pictures over here of some little, inexpensive houses which could be constructed for those who currently live in tent cities such as this one in Olympia, Washington. If the state could step forward and pay for them, I suspect that money would be saved on balance by reducing emergency room visits by these folks. The cottages are not necessarily larger than a tent, but they do provide more shelter from the weather, and, most importantly, a lock on a door.

A thank you to televiseus for sharing this photograph on flickr.
