House the Homeless president, Richard R. Troxell, lays out a jobs plan to put millions of Americans back to work; jumpstart the construction industry building housing for the newly-employed; stimulate the economy through a surge in consumer spending; delay, reduce, and restructure foreclosures; while at the same time reducing taxes and subsidies from the federal government to the unemployed. Impossible? No! It's actually quite realistic. Check out the plan here.

In Looking Up at the Bottom Line, Richard R. Troxell suggests that the arrangements made decades ago for the care of America's mentally ill have resulted in another case of good intentions gone wrong. It was a reform movement, concerned with disability rights and independent living. Some institutions were terrible places.
Richard says,
...
When Richard was drafting the Homeless Protected Class Resolution, about one-fourth of the adult homeless in America suffered from some type of mental illness. When he was writing Looking Up at the Bottom Line, the low-side estimate was more like one-third.
...
Richard R. Troxell of House the Homeless is calling for the creation of 1,000 permanent supportive housing units for the mentally ill.
...
Another, not surprisingly, is Richard R. Troxell. His Looking Up At the Bottom Line is not just an explanation of the Universal Living Wage, and not just a manual on how to change the world nonviolently and with style.

August 17, 2010: Richard R. Troxell and House the Homeless at the Austin City Council meeting
August 17, 2010: Richard R. Troxell and House the Homeless at the Austin City Council meeting.
When the words "City Council meeting" are mentioned, many people, for one reason or another, tend to zone out. But stick around, and you will hear an amazing thing. Last August, the philosophical position of House the Homeless was made clear by Richard R. Troxell and published by Mobile Loaves & Fishes, which also supplied a description of the circumstances, as follows:
Today as this blog posts the Health and Human Services Committee of the City of Austin is debating whether to amend the no sit/no lying down ordinance to exclude people with verifiable known disabilities… there is a lot of opposition…
The purpose of the session was for Richard to state the case, and for the Council to discuss it and mull it over.
...
House the Homeless takes part in such meetings frequently, and Richard often speaks. Take a look at his health survey testimony from July 2010. Or his testimony earlier this year on the No Sit/No Lie Ordinance (which is also paradoxically known as the Sit/Lie Ordinance).
...
The Texas Civil Rights Project, a nonprofit group that fights for economic and racial justice for the poor, weighed in with a letter which Richard has also contributed to.
...
As Richard says,
...
Richard Troxell with House the Homeless said that many times homeless people who are unable to get into shelter's have to resort to alternative means such as storage units. 'We are talking about the need to have safe decent affordable housing and it is not available at the wage people are being paid,' said Troxell. 'So people are looking for alternatives and sometimes they are not the best alternatives.'
...
Actually, anyone who receives a ticket is urged to bring it to Richard R. Troxell at the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless (ARCH).
...
Ball goes on to relate how Richard and his colleagues counted the 2009 sit-lie tickets, and found that 96% of them had been issued to people experiencing homelessness. (Richard adds, "It is my belief that 100% of the people receiving these tickets were perceived to be homeless at the time of ticket issuance.
...
For examples of the group's thorough information-gathering methods, and how Richard uses the numbers to make strong cases, please see the "2011 Health Sleep Study" and "No Sit/No Lie: Troxell's Testimony."
...
As Richard says, "These laws are all over the country, and none of them make allowances for people with disabilities.
...
Many of them are the working homeless, whom Richard R. Troxell calls the "economic homeless.
...
The journalist quoted Richard, and we can't do better here than to quote him again:
...
Sadeghi sought out Richard R. Troxell of House the Homeless, who explained the unfortunate tendency of people to look for such unorthodox living arrangements:
...
Not so with Richard R. Troxell. The one thing a person would never need to ask him is, "Yeah, but what are we supposed to do about it? The complete plan for fixing this mess is already there between the covers of Looking Up at the Bottom Line. Troxell, the founder of House the Homeless, knows what to do about it, and lays it out in transparent, step-by-step simplicity.
...
As President of House the Homeless, Richard R. Troxell sent an email to colleagues that said,

It is during that time that I met Richard Troxell and got acquainted with the Universal Living Wage campaign. I simply cannot count the number of times since then, that the concept has surfaced as an elegant and equitable solution to key problems facing our society. What's more, it has the potential to actually stimulate and rejuvenate the economy. Just recently, I have again had the opportunity to bring up the issue, as per my email below . But Richard can speak much better about the campaign itself.
I want to focus on how infinitely grateful I am to the Universal Living Wage campaign and Richard Troxell for their constancy of effort and smart way to go about creating the momentum for this monumental change.

Richard R. Troxell, President of House the Homeless, Inc has declared these to be "Stunning results with national implications! He went on to say that "Although homeless, over 38% of of these people are working at some point during the week. This means that the Puritan Work Ethic is in tact. Furthemore, it is now clear that what is lacking for many of them to end their homelessness is a Living Wage Job."

Richard Troxell, the Universal Living Wage National Chairman, thanked Ms. Sonleitner for her concerns and perspective and explained that this was not the first time that this concern had been expressed.
...
Mr. Troxell explained that many businesses, non-profits and other government entities were in similar situations. However, through the concept of Enlightened Markets it is possible for all organizations to endorse the concept. Under the concept of Enlightened Markets those entities that believe that every full time worker deserves a roof over their head can endorse the concept and pledge to align their budgets with the Universal Living Wage formula over the next few years."
Mr. Troxell went on to point out that we didn't start out with 3.2 million people experiencing homelessness overnight ( half of whom are working) and now it will take time to correct the situation.
