Hello, I was wondering, if you have a problem with homeless people, due to the high cost of housing?

Yup, we have quite a few homeless families and the high cost of living definitely doesn't help.

Yes, we have homeless people as anywhere else. However, it isn't as noticable as other cities. Most homeless people are homeless due to unforseen circumstances (lost of job) or mental illness. Also, quite a few of them live on or hang around the beaches.

Homeless people like warm places it is not because of high cost of living. They can't afford to buy anything so they move somewhere warm.

How many homeless people do you think have 500 dollars saved up for a ticket to Hawaii Frank? Most people who are homeless have mental illnesses, climate has nothing to do with it, since it is warm year round you are more likely to see them out
