Homeless shelter is a racket for churches and NGO to exploit. As somebody who spent a few years on the street, I'd rather sleep behind the dumpster than in the shelters, and I know many homeless people who share similar sentiment. Shelters are always over-capacity for the past 10 years, extremely cruel and abusive toward marginalized, queer and trans homeless youths. Not to mention people who willing to shank you for a bed. And the churches just keep racking money from the state where those money never go back to funding the shelters. That's the only reason the shelter system exist.
