Don’t we all have our sins?" ("Do We Help the Homeless Whether They Are Naughty or Nice?"). Therefore, we shouldn't judge the behavior of the homeless to let them access homeless shelters. In short, the opposing argument that only well-behaved people should enter homeless shelters is flawed because many people have made mistakes in life. In short, we should help the homeless by: giving homeless people a voice, giving homeless people access to homeless shelters without being judged on their behavior, and supporting the non-profit organizations that want to end homelessness.
War veterans make up 23 percent of the homeless population, it is due to the lack of aid programs, and program funding that leaves them without a shelter. Veteran homelessness fixes along with mental illnesses such as PTSD. Mental Disabilities account for 20 percent of the homeless population. This includes drug and alcohol addiction, “or other vulnerabilities that render the individual unfit or unable to obtain his or her own domicile” (Homeless, Gale 2014). The list has been growing exponentially as the years go by.
Health care is mostly delivered by the private sector, or independent, not-for-profit entities. But the services are paid for by government programs such as Medicare (federal program for the elderly) or Medicaid (state-run programs for the poor), or by commercial insurers who offer health insurance to individuals, to groups or to employers (who buy coverage for their employees as an employment benefit). As explained in a recent piece for The Economist, nearly $100 billion in fraud takes place within the confines of Medicare and Medicaid spending, while the remaining $172 billion occurs elsewhere. This means that payers have no reliable information about which services were performed, or were necessary, other than the word of the
making Mental illness the third major cause of homelessness. C. Most people believe it 's their own fault or it is over drug and alcohol abuse or just being lazy period, but according to rock center by Jessica Hopper believe it or not 20% of people that have jobs who are not on any alcohol substance or drug abuse are also homeless, which leads us to the requirement wages in order to afford a place to stay in. Not just in TN but in every state more than minimum wage is needed, Families need to earn a housing wage of 15$ an hour in order to afford a two-bed room apartment. Transition: it is very clear to us that homelessness is a major problem in our society, and that we need to take action, let 's look at some ways we can help to aid these types of situations. II.
Often times people will associate homeless population with crime rates even though the crime rate does not necessarily go up to the homeless presence in the area. However, there are for sure people on the street that play a part in the increasing crime rates in some neighborhoods but just because they are homeless does not mean that they are criminals. A lot of times people that are homeless are veterans because they are suffering from some sort of mental disorder and they cannot hold down a job or they could not find a job after they got out of the military. And being in the military myself I can say first hand that fellow members are very hardworking and sacrifice so much day in and day out most of which people do not even realize so it really sucks to see veterans living on the streets they fought to
If a person got charged with involuntary manslaughter, they would go to jail for up to 16 months. Many people believe that because they are just going a short distance, they do not think wearing a seatbelt is necessary. Experts say that “80 perfect of fatal accidents happen within 25 miles of the home (Pros and Cons of Seat Belts)”. Therefore just because you are only going down the street, you could still get in an accident. It is understandable why some believe that, because you would not think that it could be dangerous.
One may argue that this is merely an isolated incident, which is unique to michigan. However one cannot argue with the quantitative surge of more than 1300 percent of the aged population in prison since the year 1981 (“At America 's Expense:...”).

Also, according to Landmark 2006 report “ Preventing Medication Errors “ these errors injure 1.5 million Americans each year and losts 3.5 billion in wages and additional medical expenses. As for the Philippines, there is no actual number on the number of cases because of the lack of statistical data from studies conducted here, this study utilized studies from the US to further explain the case. Considering the large number of incidence due to this issue in the US, we can say that there will be more cases of which in the Philippines because of the technological difference and the lag in the nursing care system in the Philippines. This numbers brought awareness to me that we nurses as researchers need to find ways to reduce the rate of incidence of medication errors which greatly affects the safety of our clients.
A good question to ask about homeless people therefore is how do preconceived notions and stereotypes about homeless people cause city governments and it’s citizenry to treat them as inferiors who need to be hidden? Sometimes in our society, the homeless are stereotyped as homeless because they are to lazy to get a job and work hard. It seems a common belief in America that the benefits that life comes with almost always come after hard work. However, according to Wilson Dizard and Kristyn Martin of Al Jazeera America a quarter of the homeless population have employment at the time of their homelessness. “Hardworking yet still homeless in today’s America” focusses on the story of Julia Cooley, a mother of one who commutes to work a total of five hours a day, yet is still homeless when the work day is over (1).
Love (2015), suggested that unemployment is a regular reason for homelessness, the best barrier to prevent homelessness is acquiring a job that covers the cost for housing. When a person is unemployed there is no inflow of income to finance the expenses of living and providing for the basic needs of a person. Unable to pay the necessary cost of living in a permanent house may lead to the loss of a place to live. However, while employment is the best way to escape homelessness employers are often cautious of hiring persons without an address. Homeless people are less likely to get a job.
The police department feels as if the homeless will get comfortable in all of Los Angeles resulting in poverty all over the city instead of ten square blocks. Homeless people are extremely restricted in their hometown. Los Angeles has gotten rid of benches in the parks and bus stops and made the sitting accommodations to where people have to sit on the benches instead of laying down. Resulting in “bums” not sleeping anywhere, but where they are allowed, Skid Row. Restrooms have been a restriction as well.
This means that they might have to wear an ankle bracelet or are required to have regular check-ins with the program (Sullivan). The pretrial program “costs only a couple dollars a day, compared with the national average of $60 a day in jail.” (Sullivan) According to the NPR report, bondsmen are completely against this program. They feel it is taking away their business, therefore their way of making money. On the other hand, Sheriff David Gutierrez said “Releasing more inmates on their own recognizance seems like an easy solution.” (Sullivan) He went on to say that it’s only in the past twenty years that people are being given the bail opportunity
Yet, when it’s citizens and residents struggle to survive on a day to day basis, it reflects poorly on the nation itself. An important case of poor government oversight lies in the criminal justice system. In the case of the Freddie Gray riots of Baltimore, there was an issue regarding the bail for Freddie Gray’s murderers and a rioter. The court had set the bail for the rioter at $500,000 for a variety of charges ranging from minor theft to destruction of property. Yet, the most disturbing part of this story is that Freddy Gray’s murderers were actually charged significantly less.
We have the right to have things such as social security, free education, and public law enforcement, but when it comes funding our nation’s health with universal healthcare, we are quite far far from achieving full coverage. The United States health care spended total of $2.8 trillion dollars and it 's contributing to financial problems for U.S households, according to a new study that shows the complications a person must go through to avoid catastrophic health-care spending. The United States at large has about 47.9 million people that did not have health insurance in 2013 according to the U.S Census Bureau. Far less noticed is that the United States and Mexico are the only countries of 34 members of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development that do not have universal health care.
