I really miss my old job at QMC, helping families get back onto their feet. Even if Iʻm just watching children in the shelters, I would be happy to be a part of assisting these families in getting to a better place. I have heard about these experiences of being in homeless shelters from my patients at Queens but now Iʻll actually be able to see for myself what it is really like in those shelter. So far, my interactions has been professionally based in educational institution or a health care facility. I may have a difficult time connecting with individuals because I will actually be going to their home, and I donʻt have experience with that.
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.
He also says, “By investing in our ‘youth at risk’ today, does society not stand a better chance of a ‘higher yield’ tomorrow--an adult serving our community rather than rotting away in some jail?” (Pelzer 313). Foster care can help children learn and grow. “ [Foster] children may not be able to learn at the same rate as their peers and they may struggle with emotional difficulties” (thechildrenarewaiting.org). Foster children can be incredibly resilient, or they could just give up. Concerning Pelzer, one of his foster mothers said, “...he took it upon himself to carve out his future.
Some of the issues I care about concern children. I am disturbed because some parents abandon them and the children become homeless or sometimes the mother’s don’t have enough resources to raise a child. The government helps out, but only to citizens. There are many immigrants and I believe everybody should have help. Race, gender, and social class doesn’t matter.
Some homeless people are disqualified to get a job because they not go to school. Which makes it harder for them to read a newspaper, get a driver’s license or even to fill out a job application. The lack of education is causing more and more people to become homeless every day. Not having an education can put many people out in the streets. Instead of ignoring the fact that homeless people are struggling, someone should help the need instead of helping the people who do not need the
There are many different ways that you can help students that are dealing with homelessness. John Heegard,a veteran teacher said that “The way I look at it, my job is to build relationships, get to know my kids. I have to be honest, open, and treat them like young adults, which is what they are. Valencia and I already had a relationship, so the trust level was at a place where she could trust me.” (Holgersson, 2010). The very first strategy for helping children that become homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless, is to first build a trusting relationship with them while they are in your class.
A family without access to resources and support systems is expected to find the maintenance of a viable home environment difficult. Despite this, the importance of a healthy environment is emphasized, specifically in families with young children. Thus, parents are often forced to decide between the health and safety of their children when they encounter domestic violence and financial instability. Furthermore, it is predicted that the children raised in homelessness will be unable to escape that way of life. The continuation of this trend reflects the effects of inadequate education and the common development of unstable mental health in youth (CMHC, 2003).
In their website I saw many homeless children.I felt sympathize with the homeless children so I decided to donate my money and toys to them.Because I thought my money can help them be educated.Maybe the organization didn 't have equipment enough so they could not teach the children.Moreover Life of the children was better.

I have spent my whole life hearing about how children around the world are going hungry every night and sleeping on the streets. It is a very important issue that needs to be addressed more there are kids in other countries who have nothing and no one. People don’t like to address the issue because it is too hard to accept just how sad of situation they are in or who people who want to help but just don’t know how .But as hard as it is to accept that there really are kids who have it rough who need as much help as they can get. Now yes there are organizations out there that are made to help these kids like Andre House of Hospitality Formed in 1984 by two Holy Cross priests From Notre Dame. The house provides food and clothing, as well as education
