We can thank the government for a lot of this homelessness, close the facilities and gave everyone a pill.

In principal, you are correct.

In practice, it's a lot more complicated.

Rarely is it truly a money issue.

Usually, it is mental issues, drugs or other problems causing them to chose to be homeless.
- In housing programs, there are usually rules and they are often unable or unwilling to live by those rules.
- Housing for the homeless is often destroyed by those it is intended to help.
- In the old days, the mentally ill (and often drug addicts) would be locked up in sanatoriums...that came with it's own set of problems (ugly, nasty problems). For the most part housing of the mentally ill in sanatoriums is considered unacceptable.

I see you are from Canada and in the major cities of Canada, there are homeless so, another pretty rich country that hasn't solved the problem. Of course, Canada has a natural deterrent to minimize the problem. Come winter, the vast majority die or find their way south and once across the border, they have little incentive to return. It's similar in the USA with the biggest homeless problems occurring in warmer weather areas.

So what is the solution, that you propose?
