My Responses

I don't think the facts sort of answered my question about them helping the homeless, because what I mean by that is, I wonder how their progress is doing. Furthurmore, this might answer half of my questions, but not entirely. I am not sure they answered my other question about how much money they have earned. Although, I did looked up their history, and it seems to me that their progress isn't giving much help for the homeless, so that might also answer my first question. The purpose of the HUD however, has answered my question clearly, because their mission was to make strong homes for the homeless. In the 1990's for my question, I think they aren't doing a good job on that. I mean, I don't think the HUD were helpful in the 1990's. I predict that what's gonna happen in Our America story, is gonna involve violence and a lot of protests.
