Would you rather help someone whose family is homeless because they are victims of circumstance (Mother or father were good employees whose company(s) were downsized, or who fell ill and subsequently their home was foreclosed on etc...) over a person that is homeless because he/she has a drug or alcohol problem that caused them to get fired and lose their home.

48% (72) I'd rather help someone who is homeless because life gave them a raw deal. Someone clean from drugs and alcohol that wants to work & help themselves but is just not in a position to.
2% (4) I'd rather help someone whose homeless because of their own poor judgment. Includes alcohol & drug abuse.
48% (71) I would not differentiate between the two, however I would expect the person to be clean from drugs & alcohol in order for them to be properly helped so they can return to the workforce etc...
