These two arguments are that homeless people have done or are doing things that society sees as morally unacceptable and that homeless people have received help from their social community and have not made efforts to make connections. These assumptions often give people a negative outlook on the homeless people, to which many people treat them as second class citizens. The homeless are also abused physically and verbally, by people who assume that their asking of assistance is an affront to the person at hand. This has created a bad stigma against the homeless population, who are often feared and even seen as and treated like
This shows that U.S minorities have been placed in a separate area for a long time, as noted in the article. In Addition , ''Government needs what no one wants, maybe a landfill or incinerator''. This shows that the government is building a system with the things people don’t want. To continue, the reason why this happens to black and the Hispanic community because the government don’t care who they hurt as long as they getting money. For Example, ''Garbage transfer station nobody wanted...........near the predominantly black Harlem neighborhood''.
Rose Mary and Rex choose to be homeless. The sense of unexpected adventure and little responsibility is enticing. Homeless people do not partake in taxes or jobs.

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
states that the aim of the homeless people is just to obtain their right to decent roof over their heads and ther is no central ideology in this movement. The members of groups are autonomus from each other. (1969). As it can be seen, at first the aim was to find a decent roof over head of homeless people. But when we look at todays' contemporary squatting image, there has been some changes.
Homeless veterans and how they live on the streets and how they got homeless. Also how our government is trying to get rid of so many homeless Veterans.

This caused her to go on the streets. The stereotype that homeless want to live on the street, and there is no way anyone can get homeless, is wrong. After interviewing Ann, the author realized that most homeless people don’t want to be homeless, it is not their fault. We can be homeless at any moment live on the streets, begging for money. If we can get rid of the stereotypes, most of the homeless on the street would get a better life.
Nowadays, it seems as though one can only imagine living in a Utopian society free of homelessness. Even though this concept may be idealistic and virtually unrealistic, all communities must crave and strive for this to some degree. It has become a societal goal to provide a sense of “home” for all, even those not so lucky to have a place of their own to call “home”. However, one cannot force another to receive help, as they can only promote the individual willingly doing so themselves, so it would be appropriate for communities to at the very least provide the materials to do so. One major way this can be done is through the distribution of “care packages”.
This shows that the town that Sammy lives in has people who don’t even go to the beach even though it is so close to their house. This tells us that the people are probably old or inactive. Would you think you could live happily in such a boring town? Sammy’s community really motivated him to get out of the town and explore the new world beyond his daily life. All this nuisance happening in sammy’s town proves that he wanted to find freedom.
“Homeless” written by Anna Quindlen, is about how people choose to be homeless instead of going to shelters and finding homes to live in. People wonder why those who don’t have homes would rather sleep sitting up on benches or huddled in door ways instead of going to shelters. Some do because they are emotionally ill, because "they have been locked in before and they are damned if they will be locked in again." Some are afraid of the violence and trouble they may find there. But some of them want things that are not available to them in shelters and they don’t want to compromise, not even for food or a shower.
Stricter laws towards him and other homeless people make it extremely hard for Frank. While trying to apply for jobs throughout the city, he has to go in with those citations on his record and see what the company says. More often than not, he is not accepted for any job. When he is on those streets the laws against what he is doing are providing no benefit for him or the economy. Frank is being denied some of the essential rights of being a human being.
