Abstract:     
This article proffers statutory guidelines designed to improve the quality of life for homeless persons. Part I analyzes laws directed at homeless populations as well as the differing common law opinions about their effectiveness and validity. Part II evaluates social contract theory and the right of citizens to a sustainable quality of life and then argues that it is in the general interest of society to provide homeless citizens with the opportunity to rise out of their destitute circumstances. Finally, Part III outlines the Homeless Vocational Training Program, which is a detailed statutory scheme for a nationwide residential training program.
