Can you move all of your life's possessions around in a shopping cart? No, I don't think so. Your possessions are safely protected in your own house. Such luxury is not possible for homeless people in America. According to the National Health Care for Homeless Council (2015), "a homeless person an individual who lacks housing (without regard to whether the individual is a member of a family), including an individual whose primary residence during the night is a supervised public or private facility (shelters) that provides temporary living accommodations.” Homeless people are living each day filled with new emerging problems, as they try to overcome various challenges.
In homelessness, social justice is having a place where the homeless people can come and live instead of living on the streets. Some of us have a sense of social justice in America but not all and we still have a problem with homelessness. Economic justice is being able to have all homeless people have a home and a job so they can live independently. America’s government is not helping enough to give the homeless people this independence. When homeless people do not have a job they do not get to input into the economic process, so participative justice is not happening for them.

Being evicted obviously is another reason behind why people in poverty can go homeless simply put one being removed from their housing and not having anywhere else to live is homelessness. One other reason is being in an argument or conflict with a family member or person one could live with. Finally for these reasons, job loss which ultimately prevents one from paying either rent or mortgage as well as any other bill directed toward their house and life. These reasons were recorded by Downtown Streets Team on their “Causes [of homeless]” article.

Some public services are not provided and you would have to go to other towns to use them like library’s, parks or schools. Poor housing can define a community and there income rate. Very few cities or towns with poor housing and income are a suitable lifestyle for children. Cities or towns with poor tax or income rates cannot provide certain services like parks, public restrooms or even sidewalks.

A challenge in our world would be the amount of homeless people. Companies or the government can help provide housing for them and once they get on their feet charge them from how much their income is. It is hard getting a job without a permanent address. He or she goes and puts an application for a job the manager would question if that person were reliable enough to get to work on time and have transportation. Some managers would take a risk but some just would not consider it.

Homeless people stereotypically live on the streets some spend nights in shelters , transitional housing or cars are also makeshift dwelling. Homelessness is a social problem and a large part of structural inequality , seventy-one percent (71%) of the homeless reside in urban areas. I believe that we are products of our environment and our environment influence the wy we think
Especially growing up in Philadelphia I have been exposed to a more varied culture the. In some places and have seen many different protests for equal rights in our community. I still think that like Haiti, this country is not fully developed into a completely free and equal country but we are more developed than in Danticat 's time. There are a good amount of homeless people In Philadelphia and when I am walking in the city I see them sleeping on the side of the sidewalk or begging for food or money. I think this has shaped me to not want to be like them and do well in school so I can go to college and get a job to provide for myself and maybe even a family one day.
The documentary “A Place at the Table,” features interviews of individuals who share their experiences and stories that lead to them becoming dependent on outside sources to provide food in order for them to survive. Not all cases of food insecurity occur in demographics of people who are unemployed, which is exemplified by a government employed police officer, Adam Appelhanz. “It was always kind of a prideful thing, that I never need anybody’s help. Unfortunately, I haven’t received a pay raise in four years. What I used to spend on a month in groceries, now gets me about two weeks,” explained Appelhanz, who is now visiting his local food bank in order to help make ends meet.
I didn 't really feel homeless at the time, I was treated just like any other person was. We made conversation with the occasional person and asked them how they liked living here in Chicago.

The more I thought about it the worse it got.

The problem city officials have with this belief is, homeless shelters have enough room and there is no reason why the homeless individuals should be out on the street. City officials in Denver even store confiscated belongings for thirty days allowing the owner to retrieve them. Denver is trying to reduce their homeless rate, but have an issue with getting homeless to go into the shelter either because they have an issue with the with rules on drug use or they have personal preference. Nevertheless, Denver officials are going to continue in their effort to reduce the city’s
First, we all know that homelessness is a problem on the streets of not just the United States, but the world. And, I believe most of it comes due to economic hardships, mental issues, and/or just pure laziness. Needless to say, I know that some of these individuals have nowhere to go. It is the only place they can find shelter and food. And, this action to me is what Charles Darwin calls, “The Survival of the Fittest”.
