    It would certainly help if the State of Utah Disability Determination Service (DDS) did not wrongfully deny thousands of disability claims each year. Some 50% of their decisions are reversed by Federal Administrative Law Judges.

    This campaign will do the most good if it adapts to the different categories of homeless people, who need differing forms of assistance.

    -- Veterans often have unique issues
    -- Homeless families need to be kept together
    -- Mentally ill homeless are probably the hardest to handle.
    -- Salt Lake City is well known to have a very large population of homeless teens, many with drug problems, many resorting to prostitution, many Gay and forced to leave home. Some could go back to their families, with proper help, if the families accept them as they are.
