Programs for the homeless are still lacking and those that are available within the institution often have a long wait lists (Walsh et al, 2012). We need programs to start allowing Aboriginal people to connect or reconnect with traditional Aboriginal culture is imperative to break the cycle and allow them to begin another journey (Walsh et el, 2012).

I. Introduction Homelessness has become an ever-growing problem in the United States that has seen many states troubled with ways to solve it.

Homelessness is a serious problem all over the world. This problem used to be of an emergent issue but is now seen as a chronic problem (Howard 38).

When homelessness occurs, it takes a toll on both the homeless individuals and the community in which they reside in. According to the City of Colorado Springs (2013), it costs $57,760 to serve a single chronically homeless individual within our community.

Further research by the city suggests that price can drop as much as $30,000 annually when a homeless individual is placed in a permanent supportive housing unit (City of Colorado Springs, 2013).
