    Well then that answers your question. The charity will do the vetting. Such charities are used to dealing with people like this and do differentiate between those needing help, and those who are bad news... you develop a nose for it as well as being involved in the communities to hear what's going on. At least those I know working in homeless care and social work for the deprived work this way. They set quite strict rules and enforce them because discipline and understanding consequences is something that is often missing. Being kind and charitable doesn't mean being naive.

    we all know you want to exploit some asylum seeker rather than training up a local , "may your morals be overridden by greed" not sure where that was on the stone tablet...
    What?

    Because my church is involved in several such projects and I know people on the "front lines" so to speak as well as a few of the people they've helped turn their lives around. So I've seen how they work with people, heard about the challenges a soft southern middle-class person faces trying to impose discipline on a group of rough uneducated northerners who view flitting in and out of prison as quite normal, etc.

    And since you ask I have been renting out my house in a deprived, low-income area for about 8 years, after we lived there a few years ourselves and saw for ourselves what it was like. So yes.

    My family have, after watching them trying to figure out how to pay the bills when some barsteward did a moonlight flit after not paying rent for 3-6 months (happened frequently as many were from abroad and once their degree ended they just went home leaving debt everywhere) , tenants that rendered the rooms uninhabitable (some really unbelievable sights) , being short on the electric bill because they had bypassed the meter in their room, the ones that hit my father & threatened my family I decided not to do it.

    Some people are just horrible and I admire your commitment but honestly I'm cynical.
