    Homelessness was never, and is not now the real problem....it is the drugs and crime that ALWAYS attends homelessness. Depravity and crime have never, and will never be able to mix with normal society..This is the real problem. Mendenhall is just another Liberal stooge taking her ques from SJW cities across the country, and will ultimately become like they are in short order.

    I was homeless in Salt lake City. They always warehouse the homeless during the winter because it's so cold. I was there in there in about 2012. Left before the winter. Hitchhiked out after another homeless guy just started to attack me for no reason the night before. And I was using a cane to walk then.

    It aint just Salt Lake. I used to (2 years ago and it's gotten muchhhh worse where I live) watch homeless drug users line up in the park outside my window each morning at 10am sharp. It's not the drugs...it's the lack of a dwelling. They don't have much else, and are rational in believing the best they can do in life is just a couple steps above where they are. There is clearly a national problem with inequality causing these conditions. I lived in one of those newly built cookie-cutter apartments in a major city between Uptown and Ghetto-town. Homeless wouldn't be homeless if they had a house. Can't afford a house, can't afford a car to go to a decent-paying job. Rich people getting stimulus checks, yet the forgotten live in their own filth on our doorsteps yet we can't work together to figure out a solution beyond throwing away their only belongings and kicking them to the next warmish place depending on the season.

    There are certain absolutes in American culture that are counterproductive which contribute to problems like homelessness, mental health and drug use. The absolutes I am referring to are all about the so-called "individual freedom". The American culture demands individual freedom even for the homeless, the drug users and the mentally ill. In other cultures where they take a more paternalistic view and approach, the homeless would be mandated by the government to either stay with family members or in state sanctioned shelters and housing, the mentally ill and the drug users would definitely be rounded up and become the ward of the government in public mental institutions or rehab facilities; many would be permanently institutionalized.

We are never going to agree that AFTER the help is given and they still refuse to participate in society, that I still need to support them. They used their FREEDOM to choose a life of living on the street. I'm no longer responsible for the irresponsible ...

    When a person becomes homeless they lose faith in their future and they lose faith in humanity. They become depressed and spiritually broken. The emotional pain is unimaginable. That is why they become drug users and alcoholics. It's to alleviate the pain. That's why they're trapped. They're emotionally, mentally, and physically exhausted. They have no faith that if they earned something they could keep it. Why won't that evil Mormon church help them? They have 200 billion dollars. Plus, if you asked I'm sure a good number of them would volunteer to be euthanized. No one ever asks. I wonder why?

    @Damiens mom I agree, my parent was an addict and homeless. The opioid epidemic is probably the largest contribution. It is common for people to turn to drugs when they are poor. Many of their friends do them and they don't necessarily understand the risks. Plus people in poor communities have a lot of odds stacked against them and some feel like they don't have a chance. So they use drugs as a coping mechanism. It's a tough reality that society needs to change if they want to see fewer homeless people.

  • Damiens mom

    But a lot of them become homeless because they are addicts and these shelters are always in low income areas where drugs are easy to find. Probably because they give cities like Draper the option to vote against a shelter being built in their city and of course wealthy people don't want that around them. If they would build shelters in areas that aren't common drug hang outs a lot of these homeless people would probably try harder to stay clean and accept the help. I am a recovered addict and I never went to cities like Draper to buy drugs. They need to stop letting people vote on where these shelters can be built.

    Why couldn't they build a tent city where these people could have basic services. A bath room, a shower, someplace to get a meal. Let them live in their tents if that is what they want. Build a wall around it so people have a sense of security. There's so many available city blocks on the west side that could be converted but it seems as SLC only wants to build luxury homes. It's very sad to see these people not have basic services.

    The solution is too legalize drugs, let them do as much as they want, short term we will see a spike in crime, but long term it's a successful strategy as they die of overdose and the numbers simply thin out. This strategy has been a huge success in California where they facilitate addiction with free syringes and many parts of the northwest such as Oregon and up into Washington. It's difficult to have empathy for poor life choices when even the mentally ill self medicate. Why waste money on education and prevention when the final solution is so much more effective ?

    I love how the news makes the homeless population look like this helpless victims but you have residents who live around these encampments who are literally afraid for their lives. The homeless population needs help yes but stop making them look like helpless little puppies who need a home! I'm sure there are a few good ones but in reality my in-laws live near one of the encampments and the homeless people are pissing in their yards or across from them and leaving needles on the ground and fighting right in front of their house. People who live around these encampments have done so for decades so why should they be expected to put up with that? These arent harmless people, a lot of them are addicts, thieves, and criminals of all kinds, yes its sad that they ended up where they did but stop trying to blame it on the pandemic when this has been an issue long before the pandemic. Its also frustrating that the rich areas like Draper get to throw a fit because they dont think their community should have a homeless shelter in it. If you keep placing homeless shelters in bad areas the people who need shelter are also going to be easily drawn to the drugs in these bad areas. They keep placing drug addicts in areas where drugs are easily found and people are surprised this keeps happening? Did we forget about Rio Grande already?

My step mom got her rent and or bills paid by them, my neighbor was doing it at the start of the month for years, my mother in law has gotten a ton of help from them, after her husband and youngest son passed away they gave her an envelope of cash to help with her bills, he said it was donated by members even though she never really attended church. Idk why so many people say they dont help but I think its because they probably tried to get help and didnt get it but there are stipulations with getting help from the church.

    Exactly! While I was doing my social work internship in Ann Arbor 35 years ago, a young homeless man told me he came to town specifically for the generosity of the Mormon church. I later talked to the gentleman at the LDS church and he was clueless about being exploited by the homeless guy.

    @noon T Yes they do but you have to promise to attend church or something for them to help. I had a neighbor who had medical issues that prevented her from working and she would go to the church at the start of the month and they would help pay a portion of her rent as long as she did something for them. I cant remember if she had to attend church a few times a month or what but she wasnt working and only got 600$ a month for disability and yet got her rent paid for her.

    Thats the truth. I've known several lazy people who just dont want to work so they take free handouts wherever they can. A lot of them would go at the first of the month to get the help before anyone else could even though they were capable of working but had found "reasons" why they "can't work." I always found that incredibly selfish because now a family that really needs the help cant get it that month because these shady people beat them to it.

    Make housing affordable in this godless state. Ease up the tiny house regulations. And raise the minimum wage to a living wage. Just start there and watch things improve.

    Give these people a dumpster & porta potties so they can quit being uprooted. Keep them away from businesses and blocking sidewalks. The biggest threat to the public is after they get their "home" bulldozed & it needs replaced.

    What did the government expect? More Americans going homeless each day because cost of living is astronomically high yet wages are set to 1980s levels. They get charged thousands of dollars for the most basic health needs like insulin. This is a systemic problem with the USA where the poor become poorer until they are homeless. They are literally left to die if they lose their job or source of income. The middle and upper middle class of America pay the majority of the taxes while the multi-billion and trillion dollar companies pay no taxes using repulsive tax evasion schemes. The billionaires have most of their wealth in equity stocks and barely pay any taxes. The government spends trillions of dollars in tax cuts and bailouts for billionaires but leaves the average American fighting for scraps. Never forget what happened to Wall Street in 2008. Poor people and people without any financial support early in life are just left to die on the streets. Modern America is owned by oligarchs. They control everything from the news, banks, and even the government. It's disgusting how selfish and greedy this country has become.

    It worked for a short time but the issue may be that they are placing these shelters in bad areas where drugs are easy to get. Its not fair that cities like draper can throw a fit because they don't want a shelter in the middle of their wealthy area so the state ends up putting them in another bad area around drugs. These people need to be away from the drugs not right in thr middle. You cant be surprised that the homeless population stays homeless without acknowledging the biggest reason why, drugs! It also doesn't help that the news makes them look like poor defenseless puppies when in reality a lot of them are criminals and addicts.

    I currently live in the one emergency shelter/motel the old Airport Inn. It's been the first time in a long time, I've known I had a roof to sleep under, in a very long time. It's been great and I'm thankful. However, for all of us here, our time is almost up. And we will be right back out on the street in two weeks. They are closing this place on the 15th of this month. As the time gets closer, my anxiety and stress are again through the roof. The ONE reason, I didn't want to come here. Was getting comfortable, and feeling secure. And then having it end and torn out from under me. It sucks. I wish I could find someone to help. But it's my nightmare, no one else's.

    @Anthony okay buddy. The small mind typically resorts to name calling and temper-tantrums. It's easy to think you hit a home run when you were born on third-base. BTW, I'm a self-taught web developer with an engineering degree from a well-respected University. My parents weren't rich, but I make good money. I'm also not delusional about the advantages I've been given in life compared to others. Don't talk to me about education or applying yourself.

    Interesting how this passed December I heard that Utah, and just about the SLC greater area ranks in the top charitable places in this country. Probably means donating money just to get tax breaks, because anything dealing with struggles from it's Republican ran state I always read peoples comments trashing the homeless. Also always trashing talking people who move into your state from another state, saying they're all to blame for your problems. Maybe your elected officials are awful for your poor judgement in voting and not being leaders keeping up with how the fast paced economy runs now. Your housing crisis, that has nothing to do with outsiders. That's your city officials not getting enough housing done. Complain about liberals from the west moving in, well you guys obviously have no problem selling to them and making a buck off of it.
