What happens when a housing development for the homeless is proposed for your neighborhood?

I'm following the debate over one such project in Fullerton -- a microcosm of similar fights over homeless shelters and housing happening all over SoCal.

I want to know: Do you live near a shelter or housing development for people who have experienced, or who are experiencing, homelessness? How has it affected you?

If such a project were proposed for your neighborhood, what questions would you have about it?
