Ways to help Homelessness in America

Ways to help Homelessness in America


Homelessness in America is a growing issue. But I feel that as individuals,families,communities,and a nation we can find ways to help.The first and one of the most important steps is to understand and learn about the homeless. Not every person out there is homeless for the same reason.There are many reasons that someone might find their self homeless, such as recent loss of job,running away from home,domestic violence victim, or even drug addiction. We need to make sure that we educate ourselves n many different topics,so no matter what someone maybe going thru or why they might be homeless, we can be there to help them. Another way to help is by donating. You can donate a verity of things from clothes to toys and even your time. Many homeless shelters are non profit organizations, so donations and volunteers are how they stay in business.You can also go door to door at local business to see if they would be willing to donate items or financial help. In the end the best thing you can always do to help the homeless, is to simply HELP , in anyway possiable.

Homelessness in America

Homelessness in America

 

Homelessness in America is a growing issue,With the cost of living going up ,these days, and the employment opportunities going down, more and more people are finding themselves homeless. The lack of affordable housing and the decline in the availability of public assistance also contributes to the rise of homelessness. It seems like these days even if your working forty hours a week your barely able to pay house hold bills ,while earning minimum wage. There are people working, who still do not have a permanent roof over their head. I feel to try to help homelessness minimum wage in the nation needs to be raises to at least eleven dollars an hour. I also feel that ,as communities, we should get together and help each other , by fundraising and donations, to possibly build more fixed income housing for those working with families who need a stable home.Also we need to try to provide more homeless shelters with job assisting programs.Sometimes people just need a helping hand and a second chance to turn there life around.
