San Antonio, Texas, USA.
“Homelessness is a major challenge for almost every major city in the United States.”
“According to the Interagency Council on Homelessness, providing supportive housing opportunities to people with the most intense needs, communities spent much less on preventable costs for public programs as well as on shelters, jails, ambulances, and emergency rooms.”
