I have been homeless, but I have a car, luckily. I absolutely applaud this effort. The United States would never do something like this.

@sweetdestruxion commented:

The people who have never been homeless say this isn't enough. While it would be amazing to have a whole apartment available, if you've ever been in the situation, you would know how absolutely heavenly this simple gesture is. To have a place out of the cold and wind.
