Do you think landlords would accept homeless people as tenants if they had financial support from the city?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on January 11, 2005
“Maybe. Renting is already a financial risk with tenants as it is. There would have to be an absolute guarantee that the rent would be paid.”
“The government should not be in the business of using tax dollars to pay people’s rent.”
“I hope so. I think everyone needs a chance, especially homeless people. If the landlords are being compensated, they should help out the community.”
“In a perfect world, I would like to think that people would be gracious enough to accommodate others, but I think it would definitely depend on the circumstances.”
