Think long and hard about

Think long and hard about your question, digg in your Bible, and I believe you will find your answer.
The term "put out on the street" was used figuratively.
He wasnt left "out in the cold". He didnt have to walk on the street to get somewhere warm. He was dropped off at a safe place, with a cell phone in hand, until he could attempt to contact someone. His violation of our trust on multiple occasions, in my opinion, warranted the actions.
As far as I am aware, he never spent one night without somewhere to sleep, and if he did, that would have been his own fault. If he had contacted his probation officer, and notified him that as of that night he had no permanent address, he would have been picked up that night.
The circumstances of him leaving the church is another topic, but the bottom line was that he broke the rules and was given multiple second chances. After MUCH prayer and deliberation, the leadership of the church gave him one last chance, and he again violated our trust. My wife and I were heartbroken the night we he was asked to leave, we had become very attached to Mike, however we fully supported the decision of the church given the circumstances, and knew that his refusal to follow the rules could no longer be ignored.
