This caused her to go on the streets. The stereotype that homeless want to live on the street, and there is no way anyone can get homeless, is wrong. After interviewing Ann, the author realized that most homeless people don’t want to be homeless, it is not their fault. We can be homeless at any moment live on the streets, begging for money. If we can get rid of the stereotypes, most of the homeless on the street would get a better life.
Homelessness can affect anyone in any community at any time. People may think to become homeless that a person must be lazy, on drugs, or must be uneducated but that is not always true. There are a lot of factors that can make a person become homeless, such as divorce, domestic violence, lack of child support, and most commonly, losing your job . The factors for homelessness may change depending on the area and social class the person is in. For more wealthier and upper class people, becoming homeless is less common.
It is hard to imagine life as a homeless family. I hope that I’ll never have to move my family from shelter to shelter as some families must do every day. According to the essay “Homeless” by Anna Quindlen, we should take more time in our lives to see the pain that homelessness creates. I agree with Anna Quindlen’s assertion that a home is everything. A home can provide certainty.
Quindlen is trying to say that the homeless do not have small things to enjoy in life like we do. They do not get to come home and grab their favorite food right after school or work everyday like some of us do. They fight to survive everyday and no human being should have to live like an animal everybody should be able to have that feeling of love and happiness that we have when we come home. The homeless have it worse than we want to see but if we as human beings start seeing this and realizing that nobody should have to live like that I believe that we could give homeless people the life they deserve and give them a place they can go to and call home and finally feel that love and happiness again like all human beings
Based on the stories, homeless people are not exactly like what stereotypes say they are like. Homeless people are very similar to everyone else even though, others may feel that they are completely opposite since they are homeless. Also, most homeless people are misinterpreted and people feel that they are “sick and dirty.” Lastly, the homeless do have stories to tell and are wise unlike the fact that people believe that they are uneducated and not smart. All in all, the homeless are valuable and significant to everyone and should be treated just as well as the rich
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.
Introduction: No shelter homeless - not a homeless! Homelessness has nothing to do with a lack of shelter. Homeless definition: "an inexperienced connectivity with the family or community," (Dominic Map stone).The fact that is now recognized as a habitat, the United Nations human settlements programme. If the problem is the lack of the shelters for the homeless shelter, why don 't all always full? In winter they are more busy more shelters won 't solve the problem.
Homelessness can be caused by many things such as lack of education, substance abuse, and unemployment but just because a person is homeless doesn 't mean that they are stuck that way. Many things can and are being done to help homeless people around the world and hopefully it will soon no longer be an
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.
