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.

Well, I have firsthand experience on what it is like to be homeless in a single parent household during the great recession of 2008. My mother struggled during this time to provide for me and my younger sister, but with no job, and no money, we were no different than the millions of other single parent families that were now on the outside looking in. We ended up packing up what little items we could and lived out of our van for three months in an isolated camp ground. My mother ended up finding a decent minimum wage job along with receiving a housing voucher to move into an apartment complex

Lars Eighner in his essay “On Dumpster Diving,” challenges the way the middle-class people perceive homeless people who dumpster dive. There are different types of dumpster divers. Dumpster divers aren 't necessarily homeless people, even though the majority are, but there are some people that see something they are interested in the trash, so often times they take it.

It makes some people believe that the government is not caring about the veterans and are focusing on some other issue. There are multiple factors that can lead a veteran to become homeless. One of the biggest issues is “The psychic wounds caused by combat will reverberate over the coming years and in some cases lead to homelessness.”(Peck).
