Provide Housing First to Homeless, not preconditions

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/inspired-life/wp/2015/05/06/meet-the-outsider-who-accidentally-solved-chronic-homelessness/ This article shows how other cities have effectively reduced homelessness and saved money. They provide housing to the homeless up front with no preconditions, then help them get on their feet to become productive. LA does the opposite by only providing services as the homeless fulfill requirements. This is not new, and it is not radical. Please have your staff review and please place a motion to put such a program in place here in LA.
