    About 4,000 people on any given night are homeless in Baltimore-Why not use some of those vacant city owned properties to shelter the homeless?

      The city owns thousands of homes that are vacant. The new shelter is already filled up to capacity. It costs 28$ a night to put someone in the sheter, you could afford remodel abandoned buildings and house people in a more cost affective way
