biblical Passage {Judge]
What needs to be done?
In Leviticus 25:35-36 it says,
“If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you. Take no interest from him or profit, but fear your God, that your brother may live beside you.
This passage tell us,
To assist those in need, whether they are a stranger or you 'brother'.

Also in Luke 3:10-11 it says,
And the crowds asked him, “What then shall we do?” And he answered them, “Whoever has two tunics is to share with him who has none, and whoever has food is to do likewise.”
This passage is here to tell us, those with more should give and help the poor so that everyone may have an equal amount, and i feel that this would apply to the issue of homelessness likewise.
