As part of my work with people experiencing homelessness, I frequently speak to groups around Bethesda on the subject. I always ask the same question:
“How can we end people’s homelessness?”
And I pretty much invariably get the same response:
“We should help them get jobs!”
That answer, implicitly advocating for self-sufficiency, sounds reasonable . . . until you think about what it’s like to live on the street.
