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.
Moreover, there is the fact that the majority of homeless individuals do not have cell phones or consistent transportation to a workplace. Adding to these problems is the difficulty of staying clean, and it begins to come clear why these individuals have so much difficulty finding and holding down a job. Some also hold the perception that all homeless individuals are unemployed. A Vox article counters that idea, stating that minimum wage workers who work full-time would not be able to live stably in the average apartment in any state in the U.S. Therefore, even people who have full-time jobs can be at risk.
I understand what it is like to go without food, a regular bed to sleep in, clean clothes, and wondering whether my classmates and teachers would know I was living in a van in the woods not far from where I once lived. Most people can recognize or have seen at least one homeless person sleeping on a park bench or sitting outside in the cold with a cardboard sign. But not everyone knows their situation, and many do not offer to help. I feel that the problem with homelessness, especially among single parent homes in the United States is mainly due to the cost of inflation with housing, and the fact that minimum wage has not gone up to make it possible for lower to middle class families to provide for their families. I feel that the only solution to the problem is to spread more awareness by using social media such as, Facebook and Twitter.
It is impossible to stop all the factors that contributes to homelessness but it can be made more manageable. Creating more jobs and filling them with homeless people who needs jobs to survive will change the economy because there will be less people needing assistance. The work force may even become more prosperous because the homeless people understand that they need their jobs to survive so they may work even harder than the regular workers. This effort will slowly reduce the homeless rates in the United
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.
I often see the homeless on the side of the road and I normally refer to them as homeless people but what I fail to realize is, that “homeless person” has a name, that “homeless guy” is a human being just like the rest of us longing for certainty, stability and privacy. Those “homeless people” are human beings without a home. Anna states, “Home is where the heart is. There’s no place like
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
Having a college degree or anything beyond high school are done to establish a career and a pathway to lucrative employment. Though matter how well managed a homeless shelter is, there are certain quarters of the community who would come up against them. There is always a stigma attached to them by the community they reside in. The best possible way is to create a system to provide them with adequate training and education to create a career lane for gainful employment. I believe the responsibilities not just the government and influential individuals and corporates but to us all to help out.
If these hurdles are adequately addressed, the homeless population will be able to access quality healthcare just like the other populations.
