Six Months Enough Time For Homeless Transition?

KIEM- TV News' question of the day asks whether six months is enough time for the homeless to transition to alternative housing. I answered Yes, but I think that's oversimplifying things.

Six months should be more than enough time, but that assumes there's a workable plan in place that everyone agrees on. It's probably taken us at least six months to come up with whatever plans we have now, and many still argue over those.

We should give the sectional 8 renters the equivalent. Surely they can find affordable housing elsewhere without having to rely on taxpayers.

Section 8 of HUD, what a hoot. Research shows the really poor don't mind living in less than standard structures, and since Eurtweeka has lots of section 8 squalor, not surprised that city officials are cherry picking building codes, preferably staying away from section 8 except for sanitary stuff, like toilets, water heaters, sewer and water. Is it any wonder lots of landlords let their buildings go to pot. Too costly to upkeep, but easy HUD money.......

6 months is more than enough time for people withoutental health issues, ciz who knows how long that takes.

6 months, get a job and independency, or else move out of Humboldt County.
