Many people could care less of homeless veterans even though those veterans give those people freedom and rights. Those people need to help support our homeless veterans. The government is already helping homeless veterans get off the streets and helping them start a new life. Many kids have parents that have served in the military including my parents. I couldn’t imagine what would happen to us.
Homeless veterans need more help After all the things that homeless veterans have done for this country, they need more help. Many times, veterans will be seriously injured while in service. Whether it’s a physical or mental injury, they are serious. Secondly, sometimes in the military, women will be sexually assaulted which can lead to mental illnesses and cause them to be homeless when they come back home from the military. Lastly, many times veterans will have children that they have to come back to after their time in the military and if the parents get injured, that can affect the children significantly.
In most cases, homelessness is caused by mental illnesses, abuse, and financial problems. While many people are homeless because they aren’t willing to try to get back on their feet, we seriously need to consider what kind of situation they are in. They might not be mentally or physically able to. Also, it is very rare that someone would impersonate a veteran. It is especially important that we help them because they spent most of their lives serving our country and they shouldn’t have to go through so much hardship after going through so much
It is impossible to stop all the factors that contributes to homelessness but it can be made more manageable. 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
Without having a home, you have very little privacy, if any at all, which is why a home is everything. More people suffer from homelessness than we realize. We often take for granted having a home to go to. I completely agree with Anna about her feelings on homelessness. I often see the homeless on the side of the road and I normally refer to them as homeless people but what I fail to realize is, that “homeless person” has a name, that “homeless guy” is a human being just like the rest of us longing for certainty, stability and privacy.
The homeless have no true place to call their own and they just have to hope and pray they find a safe warm place to sleep and a meal for that day. Worst of all though is that the homeless do not have a place they can feel loved and be happy at like we do when we come home everyday. Quindlen said it best when she says”they are people who have no homes. No drawer that holds the spoons…”(Quindlen 216). Quindlen is trying to say that the homeless do not have small things to enjoy in life like we do.
I understand what it is like to go without food, a regular bed to sleep in, clean clothes, and wondering whether my classmates and teachers would know I was living in a van in the woods not far from where I once lived. Most people can recognize or have seen at least one homeless person sleeping on a park bench or sitting outside in the cold with a cardboard sign. But not everyone knows their situation, and many do not offer to help. I feel that the problem with homelessness, especially among single parent homes in the United States is mainly due to the cost of inflation with housing, and the fact that minimum wage has not gone up to make it possible for lower to middle class families to provide for their families. I feel that the only solution to the problem is to spread more awareness by using social media such as, Facebook and Twitter.
Have you ever seen the dirty, homeless people on the streets? Maybe if they had access to health care, they could clean up and look better. Nevertheless, if that homeless person could clean themselves up, they could interview for a job and start a new life. Major reasons for this is, it would save lives, in the long run it’s cost-effective, and providing free health care helps people gain access to insurance. Basic health care should be free to everyone because, it could save lives, in the long run it’s cost-effective, and providing free health care health people gain access to insurance.
Homeless are often set up for failure by these things so they end up getting into trouble and in jail by not being able to pay for such unreasonable things. Police are already viewed pretty negatively by the homeless and by doing this it just adds to the negativity. So, homeless become even more less susceptible to come to the police for help. Homeless that fining effects are often put in a position where they have no place to go because shelters are either to fall or too violent and sleeping in your car or the streets is criminalized. To conclude I think this solution to getting homeless off the street is moving in the opposite direction.
