Description

One of the most expensive health and human services program in California was designed to help the elderly and disabled afford basic necessities. The program, which costs “almost three billion dollars”, is covered by taxpayers. But when you look on the streets, you will see a number of elderly people living there because they aren't able to pay for food and shelter. The issue that arises is how the money is being spent and whether the program is working or not.
