Creating more jobs and filling them with homeless people who needs jobs to survive will change the economy because there will be less people needing assistance. The work force may even become more prosperous because the homeless people understand that they need their jobs to survive so they may work even harder than the regular workers. This effort will slowly reduce the homeless rates in the United
Moreover, there is the fact that the majority of homeless individuals do not have cell phones or consistent transportation to a workplace. Adding to these problems is the difficulty of staying clean, and it begins to come clear why these individuals have so much difficulty finding and holding down a job. Some also hold the perception that all homeless individuals are unemployed. A Vox article counters that idea, stating that minimum wage workers who work full-time would not be able to live stably in the average apartment in any state in the U.S. Therefore, even people who have full-time jobs can be at risk.
For families itself, this situation makes them hard to pay bills, a serious illness or disabling accident may deplete their funds and push them out onto the street. They can be homeless because of several reasons such as loss of combined income, legal fee, extra payments, and others. Whereas they do not have places to survive with sufficient money and end up they decide to sleep at the road, bus stop, bridge and street. Changes in family structure, such as the increase in single-parent families and the decline of marriage rates, are thought to have made families weaker to changing economic conditions which can lead to homelessness. That is, more families are becoming dependent on a single-wage earner, making them increasingly liable to severe economic hardship as a result of a job loss due to economic conditions, poor health, or some other

It is impossible to count the exact amount of homeless but it is known to be millions every day everywhere men women and children are begging for money on the streets “Most of these people carry shopping bags and carts to keep their belongings but have nowhere to go If someone gives them money they may respond with prayers of thanks and blessings these people are called homeless”.Although they are more than just people without homes. Most people in our society think the dirty, smelling homeless show signs of drug addictions.

Most homelessness is based from a lack of education, substance abuse, and/or unemployment. Education is life in the modern world and without that you are basically useless. There is a major substance abuse epidemic happening around the world right now and it is causing lots of people to become homeless.

Lack of housing means lack of income which usually means lack of food, so these people often do not know where or how to buy their next meal. Homelessness is a very complex problem that many governments have strived to abolish. In this essay, I will explain the situation of this homeless problem, the main causes of this problem, the problems that homeless people face, the effects that the homeless have on the society have on us, what different organizations and countries around the world have done to solve this problem and finally, the best way to help these people.

In a general perspective, healthcare is all about maintaining one’s health and improving the health of deteriorating bodies. However, there is a close relationship between healthcare and the homeless population, in that most of the homeless population does not have access to good healthcare. According to a report by the National Coalition for the Homeless (2009), poor health is closely associated with homelessness. For instance, even if one belongs to the middle or lower class in society, a serious illness will lead to a financial downward spiral starting from losing one’s job due to a lot of time spent away from work, usage of one’s savings to pay for medical bills and this can lead to one being evicted from his/her house and one eventually ends up in the streets where the person will become vulnerable to infections and
