Would you do it?
I do not think that the potential danger to my family would be worth it. Many homeless have mental issues, alcoholism or drug addictions. I do not want that or the fall out from such behavior on my doorstep. Nor would I want to live next door to such a situation.

Oh, heck no!
As you noted, homelessness is most often a symptom of an underlying problem. The majority are substance abusers.
I used to catch flak from local veterans organizations I belong to who were "trying to help homeless veterans" when I would point out most of them were homeless by choice.
I.e. choosing drugs/alcohol over taking care of themselves.

No madder what the lease says try to get rid of them once in. It will go to a judge and we know how that goes.
New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

After reading this Obama said I am on it.
I work with homeless veterans for the VA. It is correct that most homeless veterans have substance abuse problems and more than half have mental health problems as well. A good number have a significant criminal history as well. I do agree that many have ended up homeless due to their own choices, but after the last recession started, 2007/08, many veteran became homeless due to job loss and would otherwise not have been homeless. Bottom line, I would not have a stranger living in my back yard, homeless or not.
note the "government money" - that's not Portland money or Oregon money - that's good old FEDERAL MONEY .... you'd be absolutely amazed to see what that money was really allocated for originally ....
no wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy in hell would some dumbazz neighbor start a halfway house in freaking toolsheds in his backyard .... he'd learn REAL quik what kind of haphazard & careless smokers his new friends are - they'd all be looking for new housing ....
The first four are going to cost $365,000 dollars.
Sounds like Solyndra just found a new niche, . . .
Dang fool people paying that kind of money for a cardboard box with doors, windows, and a doorbell.
I am so glad Portland is just about as far as they can possibly be from Ohio, . . . even though San Ysidro is a but further.
May God bless,
If you can breathe, . . . thank God.
If you can read, . . . thank a teacher.
If you are reading this in English, . . . thank a veteran.Hidden Content Hidden Content
Are they going to attach it to your septic system? good luck on that!
Give some outcast a place to observe your everyday activities, everything could end up missing including you!
How much land is open in Oregon? must be millions of acres for them to use, why individually owned land?
Who will feed them and pick up their food and drugs?
Myself, it would never happen here with me, I have thrown way too many of the type in jail for B&E's.
Had one homeless guy that broke into many houses in 5 or 6 towns, when leaving he torched them.
We thought he burned to hide any evidence left behind, no, not the case,
did it because he could not have the place for himself, and wanted to deprive the owner of the house and things he cared about.
Today he has his room and board supplied by the state for 30 years, was not a mental case, he spent 4 months under observation.

That would be a no. I don't mind helping Veterans. But, my backyard is my own.
Let me think about it and gat back to you.
"Willing homeowners"? More like "witless homeowners".
The hilarity of such an idea is that if Joe Sixpack wanted to build one of these on his own, the city would likely shut him down on Code violations alone.
I try not to make plans much. The word 'premeditated' would get tossed around in court.

I must agree with you, Not in my back yard.
