Yep, Matt, this is the impact on allowing the market to improve its own 
economic opportunities for people ... the more jobs there are for people,
the less people need emergency shelters and food kitchens, and the better
the business climate is for small businesses to create these jobs, the more
jobs will be created ... and so on ... less homelessness.  Capitalism does
work ;-)
