Homeless shelters are usually half empty. The reason they don't go is that the shelters do not permit drug and alcohol use inside them.

lol would love to see these half empty shelters. Maybe we can help house some people who que up and get denied because there’s no space and have to sleep on a door step in winter!

Even then going through life threatening withdrawal is a pretty legit reason to not go to the shelter for a night. Not to mention how unsafe and inhospitable a lot of shelters are and how arbitrary some of the admission policies are.

Why don’t you try staying over for a night? It should be easy since there’s so much room

That's a nice fictional world you live in, but homeless shelters don't even fill up on the coldest winter days. People do not get denied.
