Getting homeless services effectively

Homeless veterans receive aid at a "Veterans Stand Down" event.

Instead of traveling to appointments for one-size-fits all programs, and spending time and money to attend meetings to discuss non-customized programs and services, the city should offer homeless men and women better social service options. 

Why not offer safely driven, mobile service delivery vehicles with specialized and diverse employees, fluent in languages of the homeless? We need social science agencies that visit the entire apartment building, neighborhood and other places where homeless people gather to give homeless and potentially homeless persons food, housing, clothing, schooling, medical checks, treatments, prescriptions and more. 

And why spend years waiting for rental housing, instead of building energy-efficient, state-of-the-art structures with laundry facilities? Here, homeless people could work and build wealth, savings, and entrepreneurial objectives.
