Homelessness is one of the most serious, yet underestimated, issues America is facing today. It affects more than hundreds of thousand people each day and almost 5 million people annually. As the time passes, the number of homeless people keeps increasing due to the poorly functioning economy and diminishing help from those who are able to easily assist them. I believe that we should organize a day, in which we would help those people in need.

Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world, with over half of the population living in extreme poverty, is in desperate need of help (“Poverty in Haiti: Aid, Earthquakes, and Imperialism”).

The article “Jail Is Sinking Families into Poverty, and Women Pay the Most” discusses the situation of Carla Gonzales, who is a part of a study of 300 families who are dealing with the crippling debt associated with their loved ones’ criminal convictions and incarcerations, and her family after the incarceration of her brother.

This debt also affects inmates after they are released as they often rely on their families, who are themselves sometimes evicted or denied housing, to find work and housing. Alicia Walters,

In fact, child poverty has grown to epidemic proportions, and the government seemingly cannot respond quickly enough with programs such as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), minimum wage increases, and State Child Health Insurance Programs -- among other remedies (Crossom-Tower, 2013, slide 9). As a child protective advocate, I would make sure

One of the most widely spread reasons was the so-called Potato Famine. It killed more than 1 million people in five years and caused great acrimony and anger at the British for providing too little help to their Irish subjects.
