Charities make people spend money for no reason and none of the money is helping them. People don't like contributing to charities because it's no reason. If the money not benefitting them why give money. Some people don't have money to just give away for free because they have kids and they also have a family to take care of and other things to do for theirself.

Most of Yen Mah’s family members could care less about her and often forget that she exists. For example when her family moves to Shanghai, on the first day of school, everyone forgot about her and no ne arranged a ride for her to get to school. Another example of this was when her father forgot both Yen Mah’s original chinese name and birth date when filling out her landing cards. She describes this pain by saying, “A pang went through me. I meant so little to him, I was such a nobody, he didn’t even remember my name!” (125).

Vance identifies the reasons for lack of economic and social success amongst people living in Appalachia, and how he broke out of it. As a child growing up in this poverty stricken area, Vance is well aware of all of the issues keeping “Hillbillies” from moving up the social and economic ladder. Aside from bare lack of money and abusive drug use, he recognizes how “Hillbillies learn from a young age to deal with uncomfortable truths by avoiding them.” In his story, he talks about how people in economic hardship would not try to change their bad work ethic or lack of education, they would just continue to labor in their same low paying job. Ultimately, this caused many of his peers to sacrifice their dreams; Vance accounts, “Psychologists call it “learned helplessness,” when a person believes, as I did during my youth, that the choices I made had no effect on the outcomes in my life.” Basically, the people Vance speaks of are their own biggest enemies; by accepting their unfortunate lives, they never go on to do anything productive, and they lose sight of their hopes and dreams. This issue is further explored in the article, “Learned Helplessness” by Jeanette Nolen, which accredits “learned helplessness” as the reason “why individuals may accept and remain passive in negative situations despite their clear ability to change them” (Nolen).

These jobs will help keep the homeless people stable, especially for those homeless people who have had an opportunity to have rapid rehousing. “But experts are divided on whether “rapid rehousing” programs that provide short-term rental aid will keep individuals and families from becoming homeless again.” (Katel, Peter), because the most difficult part for homeless people is staying stable, rapid rehousing is not helpful alone because it is not permanent. These jobs will keep money flowing so that even after the rapid rehousing program is up for the people they’ll still afford keep a roof over their heads. It is impossible to stop all the factors that contributes to homelessness but it can be made more manageable.
You would n ever know by looking at me or talking to me that my family and I have been homeless before.
