to lack a permanent home, resulting in living on the streets
How to prevent going homelessness
Affordable housing in all areas would help decrease the number of homeless people and families.
In order to eliminate homelessness we need to provide well paying jobs for everyone.
Easier access to health clinics would also help with the amount of homeless people in our nation.
Would being homeless affect your health?
When you are homeless, it affects your health in various ways, you are more susceptible to different diseases and once you get them it is harder to get the help you need and stop the diseases before they get too bad. Your social health would also be affected because most times, people won't want to associate with you because you are homeless. Your family might stop inviting you to things and stop seeing you altogether. Your emotional health may suffer as well, you wouldn't feel very confident in yourself and might feel that you would have very low self value.
