Although most people think that having no money makes you homeless, in fact, to be considered homeless you just have to not have a permanent home. Some statistics would be 55% unemployed, 33% alcohol abuse, 15% drug abuse, 3% physically disabled (O’Reilly-Fleming 38). Homelessness usually starts from tragic life occurrences/events, death, job loss, violence, and disabilities. On the other hand, a multitude of other things could lead to becoming homeless. The economy, the increase in housing markets and labor markets
In the 21st century, the serious phenomenon of homeless people is still a big problem of the society. There are around 150000 homeless children in China. Homelessness is not usually associated with China 's social problems; however, it seems more and more, especially in those who have entered the Chinese city 's floating population. The imperfect social security system promotes the severity of the homelessness. Homeless people have nowhere to live, and they need social care.
The increasing figures of homeless in Indonesia which have become a national burden that needs to be solved with the best solutions for instance building affordable houses, setting up a connection between the homeless with the authorities and providing the temporary shelters.

People think that the homeless are those of people who do not have sufficient income and poor economy that forced them to stay in the streets. This problem happened in Indonesia.

The other half is "explicit" homelessness, such as sleeping in cars, sheds, or under bridges (Kim, 2008, para. 7). While homelessness can be known as an urban problem, it is much more than that. There are several people in our society who think homelessness are majority from adults who have never mounted to anything in their life, the divorced, the drug users, and those who have no motivation to make something better of themselves, but that is just an ideal thought.

In homelessness, social justice is having a place where the homeless people can come and live instead of living on the streets. Some of us have a sense of social justice in America but not all and we still have a problem with homelessness. Economic justice is being able to have all homeless people have a home and a job so they can live independently. America’s government is not helping enough to give the homeless people this independence. When homeless people do not have a job they do not get to input into the economic process, so participative justice is not happening for them.
Therefore, there is a connection between poverty and crime. The more the number of people living in poverty, the higher the crime rate, which is obviously bad from a social perspective because it compromises safety and security in the region/country. Furthermore, many people living in poverty are homeless, which forces them to live on the streets, showing the failure of the state to adequately provide for them. 8.

Majority of the land were the areas that were illegally occupied by the slum dwellers. By 1982 the number of households in the squatter settlement had increased to a record number of 113,000, majorly due to the shifting back of the slum dwellers who had been relocated as a result of the government’s initiative to provide housing. • The development in the housing front came to a halt and even if any housing project was started, the probability of being benefited from it were very low due to the high prices. Actually of all the housing projects started under the motto of social benefit for the poor only few saw the completion and of those few only some were actually allotted the target group. Taking the example of the DDA again: During the year 1981-2000, it was expected that DDA would put 160,000 housing units into the market of which 70% was to be allocated to the poor, but it saw the construction of only 55,000 houses and of which only 58% was given to the urban poor.
By adapting social roles that do not demand high levels of personal functioning, they have adjusted to periodic homelessness. For them trust is difficult to establish and maintain. Those working with the homeless need to understand this behavior is an adaption to endemic stress4. Finally, “chronically homeless”, those homeless for more than year, are least likely to be found in shelters, most likely to be assessed as mentally ill and do not use private or public charity4.

(Impact of irregular migration). Irregular immigrants are particularly vulnerable to be attracted to petty crimes. Since they cannot find legal work that is highly paid, thus it seems that irregular immigrant communities may have no option than to resort to criminal activities to make ends meet. They try to cut themselves off from the society and usually work in insufficient economic conditions as they are unable to climb the social ladder in society. (ippr) In my opinion, asylum seekers have no other option than to do robberies and commit crime because they are highly impoverished and need something to stay alive on.
