Homelessness is something that affects people of all ages, races, backgrounds and religions. The problem of homelessness is not something that only happens in the large cities, it happens everywhere. There are people with many different problems that force them to become homeless. Many homeless people never got an education because of today’s society. If you no do not live in a home you are not qualified to go to a good school.
Many people could care less of homeless veterans even though those veterans give those people freedom and rights. Those people need to help support our homeless veterans. The government is already helping homeless veterans get off the streets and helping them start a new life. Many kids have parents that have served in the military including my parents. I couldn’t imagine what would happen to us.
Poverty in America consists of living in a community where education isn’t up to standards. Poverty in America consists of being reliant on welfare to afford rent. Many Americans do not realize the percentage of individuals and families that are barely surviving because of their class. Class based exploitation needs to be terminated prior to any other form of oppression simply because too many families are suffering and cannot seem to barricade the poverty line.
The problem of panhandling had become a nightmare for so many there. Much of the problems that Memphis faced had much to do with the lack of planning. Memphis did not address the growing problem of begging from panhandlers that plagued their community. So with the outcry from the citizens of Memphis they formed a commission named Downtown Memphis Commission to address the problem. The Downtown Memphis Commission, which is comprised of professionals and service agencies, has asked the citizens of Memphis not to give money to panhandlers.
If only they set aside a time to experience what they are going through, if only they look in the bigger picture, instead of building a rail that would only help a quarter of the population, if only they were able to empathize more --- I would go on from here but it is the ‘if only’ and the ‘what if’ that could have made a difference then we, [the people] would not have to go through this controversial. In the past few years, there has been many homeless camps lately that has been building up with families that the government either had swept up or get rid of trying to hide them from society. The government main goal of getting them into permanent housing really will not solve anything. Like our homeless for the most parts do suffer trauma and that is what they know so far but in the inside, many of the homeless like living where they are, they
Throughout the United States, the amount of homeless people is gradually increasing as the years go by. Roughly, a half million people are living on the streets, in cars, homeless shelters, or in transitional housing. Many people who are homeless lack one important thing: a job with a steady income. There are numerous arguments as to why these people do not obtain these jobs, reasons such as not having an address for applications or not being able to look presentable to the public on duty. For whatever the reason may be, these people need an immense amount of guidance and support available from their community that surrounds them.
The issue of homelessness in America is controversial because Americans have different views on the causes, conditions, and solutions to homelessness. Advocates for the homeless cite economic problems, a limited supply of affordable housing, and domestic violence as the main causes of homelessness, while opponents vehemently contend that homelessness in America is due solely to a lack of personal industry. Nevertheless opponents and advocates for the homeless are in agreement on the conditions of homelessness, but the solutions to homelessness are vigorously debated by both groups. Opponents cite personal responsibility (a steady job) as the main solution to homelessness, while advocates for the homeless cite a steady, well-paying job, and
Sure we all weren’t born the same, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be given these opportunities to see if we can succeed. The people from the low class, like the homeless people for example are understandable since they are usually known to drop out of school with not much education or even a high school diploma. They chose their lives to be like that, and they still get money, just not from their jobs. But even then, not all the homeless people are the same, some of them got their homes taken away since the money kept stacking up and they just couldn’t keep up anymore. That doesn’t mean they weren’t
With how dangerous prisons are with overcrowding they are just costing more money for providing the medical attention the inmates need. ”There have been any number of reports about overcrowded and dangerous prisons, and while the Commission presented its conclusions and recommendations to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, it's not clear what - if anything - will come of that,”(Horn). When people get out of prison they are afraid of going back. They don't have a reason to change. Most people don't have a way of even getting a job once there out as stated here, ”I work in a medium security prison in North Carolina that serves young men ages 18 to 25.
It can help a lot of families. I don’t want to think about what this problem would look like fifty years from now. If we do not take action more people will become homeless. There will be more homeless families because the children’s parents will not know how to get a job, so how can they teach the children how to have a successful career. I feel that if we teach the parents of these homeless families job etiquette and how to maintain a job, the information that
