I debated in my brain whether I should do non-Christian verses Christian , good versus evil or Hollywood versus normal people. On day one other people had already picked their ideas .And when day one ended I felt hopeless to find a new topic. A lightbulb went on in my head and I chose homelessness because it is a topic that most people forget about. But it is an important topic because the homeless are just normal people like us that need to get out of the ditch. They need to be encouraged to go on the path
The first approach is the “We are all homeless” project. The pro of this approach is that it highlights the struggles and life experiences of homeless people through art. The con of this project is that unlike the other approaches, it doesn’t provide any type of benefits for the homeless person. It doesn’t offer shelter, food or water. It only offers a time for the homeless person to tell their story and showcase their signs.
Many would argue that allowing beggars, rough sleepers and public drug users to camp on our streets tarnishes Melbourne’s reputation as the ‘most liveable city in the world’. It makes the city shabby and unwelcome for visitors and regular users of the CBD. However, the fact that there is homeless individuals in the first place, opposes that statement. Think about it, if Melbourne were to be the ‘most liveable city’, then why is it that when we walk around the streets of Melbourne, there is an inevitable number of hopeless individuals despondently begging for help? These people should not be made to suffer any longer, especially at the hands of the people who are elected to protect their welfare.
There are two parts to these myths and fallacies. There is the part where the issue that the view on homeless people is often misconstrued, and also fallacies that people have about the city, and policies in relation to homeless people are also false. The fallacies people have, according to what the Coalition found, are that, “San Francisco is a liberal city that does not criminalize homelessness, anti-homeless laws don’t criminalize homeless status they criminalize behaviors and affect a small group of disorderly homeless people, anti-homeless laws are critical to maintaining public order, criminalization is necessary to push the “service resistant” into services, and that decriminalizing homelessness does nothing to solve homelessness” (Punishing the Poorest 2015, 65). These broader views on the policies connected to homelessness and poverty are often fueled by those personal biases and myths about homeless people. People who are homeless are often viewed as lazy, or criminal, as well as being a “blight” on the
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.
The Broken Windows theory ignores social and cultural aspects like poverty and only looks at the effects of the “broken window”. For example, homeless people are treated as criminal instead of a social problem, simply because they sleep on the street and do not have another place to live. It is also a hard theory to test; it is not clear if the theory is effective. It few strengths of this theory would be that this theory has an obvious solution
Being homeless is defined as an “individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence,” according to the legal definition of the McKinney-Vento Act and being under such definition is not a pleasant experience. In the most recent worldwide study by HomelessWorldCup, there were an estimated “100 million homeless worldwide and 1.5 billion people lacking adequate housing.” This is the truth that many people do not even want to attempt to fix, or even face. With the advances in technologies and the current progressive culture itself, there is no reason for the statistic to be that high. It is our moral duty as empathetic beings to solve and prevent further instances of homelessness, by giving the current homeless comfortable,
Being evicted obviously is another reason behind why people in poverty can go homeless simply put one being removed from their housing and not having anywhere else to live is homelessness. One other reason is being in an argument or conflict with a family member or person one could live with. Finally for these reasons, job loss which ultimately prevents one from paying either rent or mortgage as well as any other bill directed toward their house and life. These reasons were recorded by Downtown Streets Team on their “Causes [of homeless]” article. There are a number of ways to go about solving the problems people have both before and after becoming homeless.
Health care, in particular, poses a challenge as homeless individuals struggle to obtain even the most basic care. In the current healthcare system, attempts to provide adequate care for the homeless are frustrating for patients and care providers. The homeless population is anything, but stable, and their lifestyle promotes illness and disease, not health.
Homelessness has always occurred in society, it has always been a great deal of despair and helplessness. Homelessness is a very frightening and difficult way of living. Homeless have often come from bad neighborhoods, suffered from mental illnesses or were born into homelessness. Homeless shouldn’t be criminalized for not having a place to stay when they are suffering and need help. If the government wants to make a difference and put an end to homelessness they need to help, criminalize.
