Home, Homeless on the Range...

As you can see, California has the most population of homeless people. This study measures the amount of homeless persons in the city. California has 170,270 homeless people, the most in the country.

Not only does LA Bus people downtown to fake addresses after they are released from hospitals and prisons, but it is rumored that the eastern state cities ship their homeless here also.

To add to it in August of this year:

Making good on a promise to trim the state budget, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger eliminated a $55-million program Friday that advocates say has helped thousands of mentally ill homeless people break the costly cycle of hospitalization, jails and street life.

What if there was a way to provide portable housing for people who wanted it in some fairly economical fashion. Instead of just giving money to the centers how about giving people a way to earn "attachable housing" or parasitic pods that attach to the existing urban environment. Plug and play. Nomad equality. Some how it can run of the energy of garbage or food waste.

Just throwing it out there...
