    This program is good in every way IMO so I’m not putting it down.

    But many do not realize the problem with chronic homelessness in Fairfax County. That’s very different than people who are down on their luck. The vast majority, if not all of the chronic homeless deal with mental health problems, substance abuse problems, and quite often both.

    What I’m trying to say, is that jobs are not the problem for those people. the underlying issues that I mention need to be corrected before we even talk about jobs, and if unwilling you cannot force them to get the help they need.

    It’s just such a bigger problem than just jobs for so many.
