To the Editor: Salit et al. (June 11 issue) report that homeless people in New York City are hospitalized, on average, for longer periods than other low-income people and at a cost often greater than that of providing supportive housing for an entire year. In the accompanying astute editorial, Starr reviews some causes of homelessness, including increased housing costs coupled with decreased real wages for the least skilled workers and lack of community mental health care.
