“What We Know About The Homeless” by Main discusses issues on homelessness. The author, a lawyer, makes many guesses or exact estimates in the article. The article did not present accurate facts on homelessness. Moreover, the article is not well written because it makes the reader jump from one thing to another.
My program will serve the homeless in Columbus, Georgia. Columbus, Georgia is in need of additional supporting programs to assist the homeless. “The most recent count given by the Muscogee County School District for students experiencing homeless in the 2011-2012 year was 2212 . In the last 2011 PIT count in Columbus; 486 individuals reported they were homelessness.” SOURCE: http://homelessresourcenetwork.org/index.php/resources/local-data/
As I walk down the streets of my city on a warm summer morning, I see a variety of people. Every step I take I see a different person and with each person comes a different story. During my walk, I see a group of kids younger than me
Sarah, I am so sorry about what happened to your brother, sometimes a family is not able to step in to help, due to many reasons. I hope, by now your family has healed. I too liked learning about the different types of homelessness, and I feel that the chronic homeless are perhaps the mentally ill and the ones addicted to drugs, but I should be careful in making assumptions, because even normal people could become chronically homeless. I too think we should help them and it weighs heavily on my heart. However, I am so pleased that there are people like Donavon Smith helping the
A couple years ago, I noticed something while my mother was taking me to the mall. It was an indigent man with a sign stating “Help me”. Often as a child, I wanted to assist needy individuals around me. This seemed like a substantial opportunity to make that into a reality, I opened my car window and held out change. He came running and took the money while uttering the words “God Bless You”. This hit me hard. I thought about this for a while and it occurred to me that we take our lives for granted, but don’t realize that millions and millions of people cannot enjoy life because money is an immense need. In third world countries, there are not enough money and facilities available. Being born and growing up in Canada, I didn't realize that
“Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” Anthony Robbins’ enriching words have acted as a framework for the type of life I want to lead. Giving back to the community can be executed in a variety of methods; I have done so through volunteerism and legislation.
In your post you bring up a really great point, “As the reading points out we feed them and offer temporary shelter - we help support their basic needs but it seems to end there.” Based on this reading, this seems to work well for 80% of the homeless population, but not the 10% of extreme cases. Concurring with your post, this is because society is disconnected and because society judges the homeless as shameful. Case and point, while I was reading another post, I believe someone referred to the homeless as scum. Another case and point, with the upcoming nuptials of the royals, because homelessness is viewed as a disgrace and embarrassment, theirs an accretive effort underway to remove the homeless people from sight. Regardless, I believe
Through this statistic, I once again ignore the point that Charlie makes, arguing that homeless people should help themselves with what is given to them, and further promote my own agenda. When composing my essay, I had an audience in mind who I was speaking to. I was talking to
He opens the paper with an appealing introduction, which is a typical story to which readers can easily relate themselves to. During the 1980s', homelessness was a long-existing problem that Americans choose to avoid rather than facing it. It was such common to run into strangers with smokey-grey hairs, timeworn faces, and scruffy clothes. For the first time one sees a homeless, an uncomfortable feeling comes when four eyes meet. One quickly looks away and can still feel that someone is watching. To avoid the haunted look in the stranger's eyes, one increases the walking speed and turns in a direction of the nearest crowd. Moreover, the unbalanced ratio between the population and the area makes sidewalks become the main transportation mean;
SOME Help to the Homeless Every year approximately 2.3 to 3.5 million people go homeless in the United States of America. Twelve million adults in the US were homeless in the year 2001, or are still currently without a permanent home (“Homelessness in the U.S.”). How does this happen in “the land of opportunity?” We think of ourselves as one of the greatest nations in the world, yet citizens are living a life of poverty, often without food, clothing, and shelter. When most people think of fighting homelessness, they think of providing medical assistance, showers, and counseling services for those who suffer mental illness, trauma, and substance abuse. Although these necessities are imperative in helping a significant
When thinking of homeless people, one would probably think of a bum who is an addict or alcoholic. Homelessness affects a variety of people. Homelessness as an issue in today 's society is largely ignored. The problem of homelessness is barely noticed. The growing population of homeless people is shown that more people are still suffering financial problems and struggling in maintaining their life basis.
The implication of my essay is, unless the criminal law of Victoria changes, the regulations of homelessness will consist of unreasonable restrictions of their movements to satisfy the majority population. The law has to balance the needs and wants of every person, and initially the law protects the right to protest (Mitchell 2005, p88). However, as time progresses, the individuals’ rights to privacy in public were prioritised instead (2005, p88). Although this statement referred to political dissent, it can also be interpreted for the anti-begging law that has restricted the homeless ability to communicate in public places, in order to produce a situation for the majority citizens to travel the streets of Melbourne undisturbed. As stated previously,
If I was instead of Scott, I will do exactly the same, because Scott helps a lot of homeless people who are struggling on the streets without family or place to sleep. In addition, I will try to make lectures to shed the light on how important we should help homeless people. Helping homeless people will give them the hope to work again and develop this country. Moreover, some homeless people just need to fall back on someone, so they can work again. However, I will encourage homeless people to work after finding an apartment for them, so they can change their life to better situation. Being like Scott would be easy if we just stand and feel on homeless people
How Can One Help the Homeless? The most common thing that comes to mind when someone mentions living in the United States is the “American Dream”. This dream including a family living in a house with a white picket fence around it. The grass is nice and green and everything seems
