How to get off the street 3:
Be attacked by the police for sleeping outside.
If they don't kill you, you'll get into the hospital.
Sue for damages.
You'll get enough to rent an apartment for a year.
(I know of at least two people who got off the street in this way. One was attacked by a police dog while he was in his tent, and another was a smallish woman tased four times by a man three times her size. Both received a settlement enough to get them housing)
