If I remember right, didn't Reno try some thing like this when they built those massive low income housing complexes that they are now tearing down all over the place. That turned into nothing more then slums full of drugs and crimes?
I lived in Salt Lake City for more than 4 years and I volunteered in soup kitchens in the city. On Temple Square, which is a tourist mecca, the Mormon church does a good job in keeping the homeless away from those who are visiting (and thereby lends the impression that homelessness isn't such a big problem after all), but in keeping with the illegals that infest the area, along with the boatloads of immigrants in the NW part of the city that don't speak English, it's a budding catastrophe.
As DAT mentioned upthread, just like with prisons and jails, no matter how much you provide these people, it will never be enough. Whatever is allocated will be consumed.
