There are many factors that motivated Mr. Baronet to undertake his project “We Are All Homeless”. The first factor is that he wanted individuals who aren’t homeless to understand why homeless people have these signs.

This website displays that there are ways you can help homelessness people from all over the world. I also liked that you can help an individual person because in that way, there is more of a connection with the person. The categories that interested me the most is employment and housing.

The pros include the four programs that are offered for homeless people. The cons is that they can’t offer anytime of housing for the homeless individual. The last approach is the Housing First model. The pro of this approach is that it finds a permanent home for the homelessness as soon as possible. The con of this approach is that the individual/family may stay at the permanent resident as long as possible but may need other attention for other needs. For example, many homeless people experiencing mental illness and need medical attention but have to stay at one
