Homeless are often set up for failure by these things so they end up getting into trouble and in jail by not being able to pay for such unreasonable things. Police are already viewed pretty negatively by the homeless and by doing this it just adds to the negativity. So, homeless become even more less susceptible to come to the police for help. Homeless that fining effects are often put in a position where they have no place to go because shelters are either to fall or too violent and sleeping in your car or the streets is criminalized. To conclude I think this solution to getting homeless off the street is moving in the opposite direction.
The current government is creating a situation where more families along with their children are experiencing homelessness. An individual may be considered homeless when they lack permanent housing and have to stay in shelters, abandoned buildings or vehicles, on the streets, or in other forms of unstable situations. Many homeless people start out with jobs and stable residences, but then social and economic factors intervene, causing a rapid change in their living situation causing them to leave, and live on the street. Even with the population of homeless keeps increasing, the government does not aid nor benefit the homeless because they only worsen the homeless problem by having laws that go against homelessness, not helping mentally ill homeless population, and having the lack of subsidized housing. Homelessness is a complex social issue with a variety of economic and social factors such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, physical and mental health, addictions, and community/family breakdowns.
Personal interviews with the homeless reveal the struggles of living alone. The cause of homelessness isn’t laziness; being homeless requires a lot of stress into thinking about how to survive each day. Most homeless people are not criminals and many of those who are technically criminals have committed property crimes in order to live. In addition, the top reasons of homelessness are lack of affordable housing, lack of a living wage, and medical bankruptcy, but none of these reasons are related to choice. These misconceptions and stereotypes are dangerous to society since they seriously interfere with attempts to help those that are in need and
Alexie points out that “poverty only teaches you to be poor” (553). In this statement he logically concludes that his family has not been able to advance because all they know is the poverty they live in. In contrast, Alexie, once again, only considers his viewpoint. Although his statement is the case for his situation, it does not address situations where people have risen out of poverty, whether it is himself or other people within the reservation. His situation is not the same situation for all.
However, estimates by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development indicate that there are 49,933 homeless veterans at any given night. Apart from those who are already homeless, around 1.4 million more veterans are at risk of homelessness because of lacking support networks, poverty and miserable living conditions in substandard or overcrowded housing. The situation is compounded by the difficulty to transfer some of the military training and occupations to civilian workforce (NCHV, 2015). This places some of the veterans at a disadvantage in the search of employment in the competitive job
Homeless Children One of the biggest problems that affect the world every day is Homeless children. "Homelessness influences every facet of a child’s life, from conception to young adulthood. The experience of homelessness inhibits the physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and behavioral development of children" (Hart-Shegos, 1999). "The education law defines homeless children and youth as those who do not have a stable, consistent place to stay at night" (Aratani, 2009). Every day the number of homeless children increases.
Finally, another major issue involved with homelessness is the safety of the populations of homeless individuals. Accomodation for the masses is a major issue when one is confronted with the issue of homelessness. Where are all of these people meant to stay, if not the streets? One answer comes in shelters, but the current shelters available in most cities are often lackluster and not the best places to stay. “The women noted that shelters currently available lack the necessary requirements of basic accommodation,” (Walsh et al.)
The troubled teens aren’t learning the right amount of education they need. They are actually learning less than the average student. The author of “Report: Juvenile justice system schools “do more harm than good” says, “The education provided to the 70,000 juveniles incarcerated on any given day across the nation is “substandard” and “is setting them even further back in their ability to turn their lives around,” according to a report released today by the Southern Education Foundation.” Not one, Not two, but 70,000 juveniles are being set back in the education that’s being provided in the system. These juveniles can’t turn their lives around if they aren’t getting the proper

Homelessness is the condition of people without a regular dwelling. Retrieved from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/homelessness A homeless person is someone who is without a conventional home and lacks the economic and social supports that a home normally affords. She/he is often cut off from the support of relatives and friends, she/he has few independent resources and often has no immediate means, and, in some cases, little prospect of social support 1. Primary homelessness: people without conventional accommodation living on the streets or in improvised dwellings (e.g.
One reason is their inexperience and youth. A lot of times being young and having a lack of experience can lead teenagers into dangerous and often criminal situations, such as joining gangs, taking or dealing drugs and drinking. A teen 's discretion isn 't as fully developed as that of an adult. Also, many teenagers lack positive role models in their lives. If a teenager is part of a family that is either setting a bad example (by engaging in criminal activity themselves) or entirely absent, they have no one to show them the correct path in life.
Homelessness is a worldwide problem however, in Canada the population of homeless people is higher. Homelessness is the situation in which a person or family is unable to provide a stable, appropriate housing for themselves. The Homelessness in Canada has grown in size and complexity by 1997. This issue is often popular around urban centers such as Montreal, Laval, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, and Toronto. By the end of the 20th century it was discovered that men included enormous majority of homeless persons previously; now both men and children represent the fastest growing population of the homeless by the youth.
Aboriginal women are account for 35 percent of the homeless Aboriginal population while non-Aboriginal women are accounted for 27 percent of non Aboriginal homeless population (Walsh et al, 2012) The cycling between poverty, homelessness, and incarceration exist because, in social services are unavailable or inadequate to meet the needs or women and men prior to them coming into conflict with the criminal justice system. This includes education, foster care and systems both of which play critical roles in the lives of young people. Programs for the homeless are still lacking and those that are available within the institution often have a long wait lists (Walsh et al, 2012). We need programs to start allowing Aboriginal people to connect or reconnect with traditional Aboriginal culture is imperative to break the cycle and allow them to begin another journey (Walsh et el, 2012). For many Aboriginal people change was rooted in a spiritual reconnection to their cultural teachings.
However, only an intensive attempt to guarantee jobs that manage a living wage, sufficient support for the people who are not capable of working, inexpensive housing, as well as access to healthcare will convey an end to homelessness. Poverty and homelessness are inextricably connected. Poor individuals are regularly not capable of paying for housing, childcare, food, healthcare, and education. Difficult alternatives have to be made at the time inadequate resources cover up merely a number of these necessities. On the other hand, lack of reasonable housing and the inadequate scale of housing aid programs contribute to the present housing crisis as well as to homelessness (De & Anderson,
Walid Ali-Gami Miss.Krasnozon,h CGC 1D0-K Jan 20,2016 The Homeless In Toronto The Homeless In Toronto is a growing problem that affects many people including the government. The homeless in Toronto is a difficult sight to see; John Tory, the city mayor has noted his embarrassment to seeing this growing issue on the streets of Toronto. There are various ways that this issue effects the city, through the economy, the environment, jobs, stores along with having a social impact on the city. One would assume that all the money raised by various charities would lead to a decrease in the amount of homeless individuals, but there has been no notably large difference. The homeless in Toronto affecting the
