Stand up for Homeless People

    There is a problem in our country, about 1 in every 600 people are homeless in the US and rising as you read this paper. There is not much that we can do ourselves to make a major impact on the homeless community. We can do small things like help some homeless people out but really nothing we can do on our own is going to make any bit of difference overall. I believe that the government should use more of our tax money to help out more homeless shelters and send more food to soup kitchens, they could even donate clothes and other necessities like that. That is the only true way to make a significant change in our homeless epidemic.

    The ability to distinguish between the group of homeless people is indispensable to provide aid policies and actions for each group. outreach programs and special development career program, like job training and job placement program, help to achieve self-sufficiency for young age homeless individuals.

    Prevent or end the homelessness among veterans. Between 2016 and 2017, the number of veterans experiencing homelessness increased for the first time since 2010. Nonetheless, homelessness among veterans dropped 45 percent since 2009. Shows a statistics from The 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report, December 2017.

    You make ask yourself, how can I help? The answer is simple, and that’s just treating the homeless with respect just like anyone else. Most of the homeless openly admit that they are mistreated by the average person, and that no one takes them serious. They have it hard enough sleeping outside every night, with no assurance that they will have any food for the day. This is where we can really make a difference! Gather a group of people, rather that is a church group or even just some of your friends, and meet the needs of the homeless. Your group could give out free food, extra clothing, or even medical care, anything that would help them through another day. Be a difference in your community and make a change in the way we view our fellow citizens that just happen to be homeless.
