In conclusion, I think soldiers’ and their families’ stories should be told and they should be helped if they’re struggling.

They also wanted to increase homeless services in Ireland and have more homeless accommodation and different types of homeless accommodation, so they could free up hostel spaces. It also made the health boards look after the health care and needs of the homeless.
Family homelessness is a growing social problem affecting families in every state. Nationwide, 85% of providers have seen family homelessness increasing in recent years(“The Facts About Family Homelessness”). Homelessness is often looked over, when someone sees a homeless person on the street they only see what they want to see it is unlikely that a person actually thinks about how the person became homeless.

In this paper I will give facts on how terrible this problem really is, whether it is our homeless Veterans, Veterans who die waiting for help from the VA because they cannot afford other healthcare, or the horrid waiting times in order to get any help.
“Homeless veterans deserve a place in the American dream” an article supporting veterans and the benefits they deserve. The article is written by Maria Cuomo Cole, a firm believer in veterans rights, which helped form my opinion and my essay. They gave us their lives and we can’t give them the assistance they need? Every day we hear about veterans who are losing everything and we just turn the other way. This problem won’t fix itself, and if we don’t do anything to about this problem it will never be fixed.
Many people around the world are homeless and majority of them are homeless veterans that served in wars like the vietnam war.

“1 out of every 100 persons in Europe- or approximately 3 million people [are] homeless,” (Blair 21) states Cornelia Blair, the author of Homeless in America. Not only is this number extremely high, it only accounts to one country; Imagine the number across all 136 countries scattered across the Earth.
