On a day of compassion terrorism of the homeless continues

Homeless people staying in New Haven, CT city shelters may find
themselves looking for new housing.

The city is instituting a 90-day limit on stays in homeless facilities, and
it closed an overflow shelter on Monday.

The new policy comes after a two-year survey of shelter users that
found that some residents had lived in shelters for five years.

The shelters now mandate that residents set goals, like employment,
within 30 days of their arrival.
