Another view of costs of homelessness on taxpayers: Homelessness Costly? National Alliance to End Homlessness Provides Great Information on This Front « Merrimack Valley Regional Network to End Homelessness Blog


Homelessness can be surprisingly costly for taxpayers. Fortunately, socially-responsible, cost-effective solutions exist.

It seems like there are studies & even tools to use to evaluate the costs to taxpayers of the various services that homeless people receive across the country.

This post does a great job of looking in depth at several aspects of homelessness & its costs.

Maybe we need a report at this level for the effect on taxpayers in Savannah & Chatham County to help us deal with the report our SMN put together earlier this month!

Thoughts? Comments are welcome here or back over on the SMN article as well!
