For example, we do not want to keep the homeless on the streets as we raise the money to help them, so we need a solution. Of course there are many homeless shelters around local communities, but they sometimes do not accommodate everyone. It is usually first come, first served. Therefore, a lot of people may be locked out of the shelter, forced to sleep on the cold pavements until the next day. If the government could find a way to build big enough facilities to place every homeless person or family in, that would be ideal.
“Homelessness has complex causes, including a changing economy, joblessness, and the loss of low-rent housing in cities.” (Mechanic, David).

Society thinks of them as lacking the wherewithal, simply giving up on life and refuse to be a part of a functioning society. Consequently, many are forced to stay in free shelters; others live in their vehicles while the remainder is living in areas not meant for habitation such as downtown areas, under bridges and
We all need help at one point in our life, so why do we deny our help towards homeless .Why don’t we help the people who once fought to protect this country that we are currently living in.

According to Volunteers of America, over 670,000 americans are homeless and 48 million people go hungry every night .Also, 46.2 million americans live in poverty. These are large numbers and sadly these numbers keep increasing every year.

The reason nearly 50% of people end up back in prison is because nothing is being done to help people who are newly released. They leave with only a small gift that won’t even last a day and are expected to be able to find jobs, but these jobs will rarely hire these ex-convicts. In fact, a lot of ex-convicts are banned from certain jobs making it even harder for them.
Unstable markets cause fluctuations in food product prices, which affect the majority of the population, because they live in poverty. Poverty stricken families and neighborhoods simply cannot afford most food, and when food product prices are unstable, it is almost impossible for them to get the nutrition they need to survive. “Over one billion people in the world live under one dollar a day.” (Felling 57) Given this number, it is impossible for those one billion people to afford the nutrition they need daily, let alone when the food prices fluctuate. Most of the children within these families are then undernourished and suffer the consequences hunger has due to the unstable markets within the economy. This unstableness of food prices in a region causes families and children to heavily rely on agriculture for their food and nutrition, but the lack of emphasis and funding on agricultural systems leaves children with nothing.

This community of individuals face a disproportionately high prevalence of both trauma and PTSD. One study states that prior to being homeless or running away “approximately 75% of homeless youth report being emotionally, physically, or sexually abused by their families and note these issues are key reasons for running away” (Bender, Ferguson, Thompson, Komlo, & Pollio, 2010). This study states that after being homeless “85% of homeless youth report exposure to at least one form of victimization… which often compound previous trauma symptoms developed before leaving home” (Bender et.al., 2010). This previous abuse leaves the adolescents vulnerable and open to further victimization which can intensify traumatic experience. The adolescents that then fail to remove themselves from these toxic situations, or don’t seek treatment, are at an extremely high-risk for then developing PTSD (Bender et.al., 2010).
