    It's hard to believe that North Carolina isn't a little California from 1870 until 2010 democrats control the general assembly that's 140 of democrat control. That's almost as long as Californa statehood California became a state in 1850.
    So Californians there is hope for you.

    All large cities have a lot of homeless, CA is just the worst , always has been. This is the way it is , rich people live in heaven while the rest live in hell and work for the rich or are homeless.

    Advocates point to the program’s four-month limit — and to this year’s statistics — as a sign of how Mecklenburg County’s homelessness safety net is becoming increasingly stretched as Charlotte struggles with an affordable housing crisis.

    “It’s a Band-Aid, and sometimes you need a Band-Aid,” said Pat Cotham, an at-large Mecklenburg County commissioner. “But there comes a point where you’ve got to stitch the wound.”

    While the number of individuals served by the program — just under 1500 — has remained relatively stable, a three-year high of 71 families sought the program’s services this year, according to Ashley Brown, who manages the program.

    The number of single adult females relying on Room in the Inn went up too, from 294 in 2017 to 334 this year.

    There are homeless all over the US, and even in NC.

    I don't live in CA or NC. I'm am not homeless, but I know what causes homelessness, and the girl in NC does work.

    You do know that many of those uber wealthy are also liberals don't you?
    They only pay lip service to the poor to placate their perceived privilege while never wanting those people in their gated communities. Nor would they ever set foot in the ghettos.
    This notion that only republicans are rich is a lie.

    There is no relevance to it it's simply an attack born of frustration at the inability to argue with the truth.
