The Central Florida Commission on Homeless Study indicates the costs of arresting and transporting the homeless, usually for nonviolent offenses such as trespassing or sleeping in parks, as well as the costs for jail stays and medical visits costs about $31,000.
The study says providing housing and a caseworker to each homeless person would only cost around $10,000.
