Gimme Shelter

The city of Fort Lauderdale will use a $440,000 HUD grant to give homes to 22 homeless households, a departure for a city infamous for its signs urging people not to help panhandlers and that has given homeless people one-way bus tickets out of town. The Sun Sentinel reports the apartments will go to those most at risk of "dying on the street." [Sun Sentinel]
