Those homeless shelters who are supposed to protect the homeless are unnecessary and costly. PBS SoCal states that a homeless shelter costs “on average, $1800 a month for a one-bedroom apartment.” (PBS SoCal Newshour) Most homeless people do not even have $1800 to begin with, making homeless housing projects a waste of money.

Ultimately, poverty is a major cause of social tensions and threatens to divide a nation because of income inequality.
