This whole system is a total mess on so many different angles from the owners of the building, the city, the leaders and the people themselves who occupy such places.
And if you are working a minimum wage job, then you should stay in Pennsylvania or Georgia, where you would be able to live in a place that you can afford, even on minimum wage. As someone who was born and raised in Pittsburgh, there are many places in the area that you you can rent or even buy, where you do not need to shell out a lot of money and it is not like the areas are bad either, they might not be fancy, but they are clean and safe.
I don't get it, you live in states that have way lower costs of living and you come to this extremely expensive city to move into a crappy shelter. Oh, but if the city is picking up your tab courtesy of tax payers, why not.
And you have three kids, one a baby, but yet you cannot even take care of yourself, did you really think you could pop out three kids and take care of them as well, especially without a partner.
Poor life choices and no thinking ahead. People do need to at some point take responsibility for the paths they choose in life or at least be prepared, when those paths get rocky.
By the way, one does not become homeless overnight, it takes a long time to get to that point due to outside factors, poor choices, not being prepared, etc., so please don't want to hear from the bleeding heart far left liberals.

Let me get this straight--the cited Jones family moves from the state Georgia in April, and by mid-June, finds herself in homeless shelter in Elmhurst, Queens, New York City, New York State. Something is very, very wrong here. At least we know where some of our State and City taxes are going...all I know is, my take-home pay is just about 60% of my gross, with no pension taken out. I have to pay Elmhurst apartment rent, electric, and food out of that. Maybe I should move to Georgia???
