Also many homeless people have a mental illness or disability making them unable to have a job. Even those with a job are unable to make a sustainable living off it. Wages are so low that one must work at least two jobs but with housing prices being so high, it makes find a place to live extremely hard. Washington and California have some of the highest minimum wage standards but even that is not a livable wage. We as a society have simplified a solution because many of us do not understand the complex issues that these circumstances
Veterans and our soldiers are coming home from war or getting out of the military and when they get home they can’t afford rent or they have a mental disease from war. Homeless veterans tend to experience homelessness longer than non-veteran homeless. This should not be happening to our soldiers. This is very undesirable for our troops to come home and becoming homeless. They fight for our freedom and our rights and we repay them by becoming homeless.

This is a problem because we can’t shelter them due to certain laws. What makes it worse is that this problem was only considered recently as stated by Kent Anderson, Waikiki Health's chief high-risk services officer. The cause of their homelessness can be traced back to their relationships with families and abuse which causes them to end up living on the streets. Furthermore, it is reported that they engage in sexual acts in exchange for drugs, food, and other necessities which can affect their mental health and can prevent help and aid because they learned a way to survive without any help from people or families. Despite the efforts we can take, without the topic being well known and without the consent of the teen or the guardians, there isn’t a effective way to move the youth in transitional
Rosemary has a passion for being self sufficient. Some might ask, “How can one be self sufficient if nothing is affordable enough to pay for to begin with?” That is clearly the main reason why the Walls don’t have hardly any of the basic necessities for living. In the first chapter of the book, Walls explains that after numerous times of being offered a place to live, Rosemary has declined (Walls). This is because not only does she qualify for countless categories of reasons for homelessness, but she doesn’t accept handouts. Rosemary takes pride in her lifestyle, as various other homeless people do too.
I told myself that I was going to dedicate my life to helping my community. To me it 's not about expecting something in return or a prize; it 's about the sense of Fulfillment which overtakes you when you realize that such a small gesture can change someone 's day or life. In the future I want to become an immigration lawyer, growing up in a Latino community. I saw people living in fear that one day they might just get deported. Not knowing how they were going to sustain their family if they were gone.
As the ones that are protecting and did protect our country, everyone would contemplate that veterans would be treated considerably better than they are today. Although they are left in the streets without food or homes to live in, so they are cold and starving. In the United States of America, we do not provide our veterans with housing when they are discharged from our military. Even after they had fought and endangered their lives to save us and protect our country from other countries that are trying to harm us and our country. From fighting for our country some of the soldiers suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD, consequently, most of the veterans do not get the assistance that is essential to resolve and or manage the
Quindlen is trying to say that the homeless do not have small things to enjoy in life like we do. They do not get to come home and grab their favorite food right after school or work everyday like some of us do. They fight to survive everyday and no human being should have to live like an animal everybody should be able to have that feeling of love and happiness that we have when we come home. The homeless have it worse than we want to see but if we as human beings start seeing this and realizing that nobody should have to live like that I believe that we could give homeless people the life they deserve and give them a place they can go to and call home and finally feel that love and happiness again like all human beings
Homelessness has existed since the beginning of civilization, usually because a lot of people at the time are too poor to buy a house. As time goes on, the rate of homelessness rises as the population rises. Homelessness then was mostly caused by a family’s history of being homeless, drug abuse, mental disorders, and tyrannical leaders forcing his people into poverty. In modern times, several organizations are now trying to end homelessness by building cheaper housing projects more affordable to the poor and homeless shelters; these projects usually cost a fair amount of money.
