I recall (from an article posted to this list a few months ago, that I saved) 
the musings of an Internet savvy tramp who accessed the net and email via 
library computers: 

<<"Nonetheless", said, Dingle, ``I don't know anyone who's gotten off the
streets using the Internet.''>>

I would think of of internet access for homeless people (at least at the 
present time) more in terms of being a "comfort measure" (not a bad thing...) 
and somthing to pass the time. I don't know anyone who's gotten off the 
street using the Internet either.
