Sheltering Homeless Saves Money

From the USC press release:

Placing four chronically homeless people into permanent supportive housing in Los Angeles resulted in more than $80,000 per year in savings to taxpayers and improved quality of life for the individuals, according to a recent study led by Michael R. Cousineau, associate professor of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC and Heather Lander, project specialist at the USC Center for Community Health Studies.
