Apartments for the homeless

I was so happy when a friend showed me this news article about Walnut Commons in Muncie, Indiana.  Walnut Commons is a new apartment community building with a medical center attached, especially designed to meet the needs of the homeless people and help them transition out of homelessness.  I hope other cities across America would follow this example.  This approach to homelessness has been proven to be effective in other cities, and I hope it will become a standard community service in every city in the U.S., just like public schools and police department.  I see this as a very viable solution to the problem of homelessness in America.
