Causes of Homelessness

Homeless is caused by many different situations. Some of these include:

  • Job loss
  • Divorce
  • Natural Disasters
  • Family Disputes


There are many different views and opinions on how voting should be handled regarding the homeless. One example includes an army veteran. He returned from war and quickly found himself homeless in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The only photo id he had was his veteran id. He is unable to vote, because this id isn't accepted in Wisconsin's new voting id law.
