Essentially the study says that when you give people a relatively large sum of money they can rent a room faster and feed themselves better. No duh. It took an entire study to figure that out? Send me a $1000 and I'll eat better too over the next couple months. But it still doesn't solve the problems once that initial handout runs down.
what was shown, from a selected portion of the homeless, if that trhey could properly manage their money
a hand out to them would prove to advance their circumstance
that group positioned themselves for employment
hiopefully, the need for a handout will soon end
and that problem will be solved for said study cohort

If you were down on your luck, lost your job, your home, etc. would you turn down that money?

You kept referring to the $ as a hand-out. So then yes, you would accept that handout?

And you're reading fiction into the study.
I'd ask "what you think you mean by that," but, honestly, I don't care about your "opinion".

Because you used that to avoid my question first.

Nevermind, I know the answer, since you are trying so hard to avoid answering. Yes, you would accept that "handout."

you forgot to make a point by identifying who would turn their back on free money

thus far you have offered the equivalent of 'water is wet'
