FIRST WE MUST FACE SOME FACTS :
Using Los Angeles as an example : 50,000 homeless (estimated)
If each homeless person was given a 200 square foot space area then :
200 sqft x 50,000 = 10 million sqft
43,560 sqft = 1 acre
10 million / 43,560 = 229 acres
Let us imagine we stack the 200 sqft spaces, such as 20 foot steel cargo containers stacked five high, we would still need 46 acres just to hold the containers, and since we will need walkways etc, 46 becomes 90 acres of needed land, just to be able to house 50,000 people in tiny little 200 sqft spaces stacked 5 containers high. (which would be horrible, and would not work. It would require hundreds of acres. )
WHAT THIS SHOWS US, is that the city and county (of LOS ANGELES OR ANY COUNTY) can have no hope of setting up housing for all these 50,000 people in any one location unless that location is far outside the city and on nothing less than 100 acres, and would likely need to be around 1000 acres or more. Even small cities with 5000 homeless cannot hope to house them in one location as the area needed is simply to large to do it as one large camp site.
The only possible option to this is to set up many small locations, and we find that if we divide up the 50,000 (for example)into workable units of 32 people each, that we would then need approximately 1562 teams or platoons, and so, 1562 small locations each capable of housing only 32 homeless persons. (WHICH THE CITY CAN DO.)
HOWEVER WE MUST FACE SOME MORE FACTS :
FOOD COSTS / person / month = $200 on average.
FOOD COSTS/ purchased in bulk = $50 possible.
So, just to feed these 50,000 people
Worst case = (200x12)x50,000 = 120 million/year
Best case = (50x12)x50,000 = 30 million/year
While 30 million could be the costs to feed these people, that would only be possible if items were purchased in bulk, wholesale etc, and the food prepared in bulk and somehow cost effectively distributed to the 50,000 persons at least twice a day.
Without a cost effective means to feed these 50,000 the cost would be closer to 120 million per year due to a lack of bulk buying and wholesale and large scale savings.
IF WE SEEK TO SOLVE THE HOMELESSNESS PROBLEM IN LOS ANGELES FOR 50,000 PEOPLE, then the best option to this goal is to seek to build the 1562 location centers which can manage the lives of the 32 persons at each location.
PRESUMING THAT FOOD IS MADE AVAILABLE by the city or by some funding means (welfare EBT), then to operate the 1562 platoons will require no less than 1562 platoon Seargents who will then manage the daily lives of each 32 people in their platoons.
PRESUMING the city was willing to fund these workers:
$19,200(minimum wage US)x 1562= $30 million/year
IT THEREFORE BECOMES MATHMATICALLY VIABLE FOR LOS ANGELES to set up daily life management systems for all 50,000 people, including food and toilet resources, by setting up 1562 tent cities across the county, and employing one worker to each 32 person platoon location to keep records, and manage the food and daily use resources allotted to each platoon, and do so for no less than 60 million dollars, and realistically something between 60 and 100 million a year due to food costs, and toilet services and other needed resources, which can be brought down over time as things get organized.
TO DO THIS, HOWEVER, WILL REQUIRE A VERY DEDICATED 1562 WORKERS, who will need to have much more motivation than just minimum wage, and that is where the EMPIRICAL CHURCH OF HUMANITY, and it's EMPIRICAL ORDER OF GOD'S CHILDREN can solve all these problems, because while the gains are slight, and the rewards would be few they would in fact be very real (OPERATION EARTH), and would take the form of establishing 1562 base locations to fund raise for that which in time, will each become an EMPIRICAL CHURCH branch location, which in turn would be employing it's platoon to run it and maintain it, and offer it's charitable services to all who may fall for any reason. In other words, the benefit for the Seargent and the 32 platoon members to work hard and get involved is to build quite literally not just a long term home for life, but a job center which will employ them for life as they work to serve our God, our father the creator by working to end poverty.
We ask you reading this, to HELP US PRESSURE YOUR CITY GOVERNMENT TO WORK WITH US, and together we can get this problem solved.
The Los Angeles county yearly budget is 28 Billion, FOR EXAMPLE. And already spends over 100 million a year on this problem, but is not able to solve or deal with it. So the reality is, Los Angeles can afford it. They just seem to have bad planning, and WE of the Empirical Order offer our services to any city, county, or state which is tired of wasting it's money and wants a VERY NICE but also a very serious permanent solution.
The solution is VERY NICE and very simple, it's called brotherly love, and acting as family under our father, our God in heaven. The incentives to get involved and work is a long term permanent home, good food, security, and an army of friends and family.
