Is it possible for every worker to have quality shelter, free of crime, in a free trade market?

No, it doesn't matter what market you are in there will always be crime and unemployment. Free market economy has been shown to be best way to keep these numbers low and create a high living standards for all of its citizens, but I do think there should be govt. involvment to stop market failure (such as stopping monopolies from forming, and protecting property rights) to keep things like crime low and create a safey net for those with low-income and who may not have a place to live.

sort of. But who is going to decide who is a worker and who isn't?
and markets never stay free for long. Competition has losers and winners. Losers go out of business, winners get (semi-)monopolies

No, economists have never talked about the looser. The looser has to just quite the market for efficiency. And that is good so. The social market economists of the Freiburg school in Germany, on the other hand, include the thought that his wife must live, his children must go to school, and he should not be a hobo. And that should be a safety-net.

It's not possible to be free of crime in any economy type.
