Hospitals For The Unhoused
Unhoused people tend to avoid homeless shelters for a variety of reasons - they're unsafe, unclean and associated with an undignified stigma. On the other hand, unhoused people frequently check into hospitals voluntarily without hesitation. So, why not build a hospital (or clinics) that is catered primarily to the unhoused community? It would be safe, clean, they'll have a place to sleep, a meal and medical care. It would be the first "shelter" that people actually want to check into.

There just need to be more hospitals there for the unhoused, it's as simple as that. Better obstetrician & gynaecologist based hospitals are also needed. That's how we can help the unhoused.
