Supporting the homeless

In response to Catholic Charities spending $380,000 a year on staffing security patrols and cleaning crews to constantly hose the sidewalk, clean graffiti, sweep up garbage and drug paraphernalia at their homeless shelters… would it not be a money- and dignity-saving venture to have the able-bodied homeless people living in these facilities to gratuitously perform these services themselves?
