Homelessness Strikes Close to Home

they don't need coins they need change

close to home

in 2007 62% of the 1 million personal bankruptcies are caused by medical issues and medical bills. savings vanish and resources disappear. most relying on friends and family's to maintain bills and food. and other things that are short lived. others bounce between homeless shelters and friends and family houses, others fall to the streets. and sometimes you think , wow that homeless man is a crazy man, well sometimes yes, because they cant pay for any of the care they need

what about the children

Children who are homeless in childhood have less likely chance of becoming homeless most/all there lives. 33.2 percent of homeless people are children. Numerous children have health conditions because they cant pay for insurance, just think. If you broke your leg, you would go to the hospital and get a cast so it would heal properly, or even pain pills right? Well if you are homeless or broke, and cant even pay for a small meal then you cant pay for any of that, you just have to hope that it heals properly, the pain stops and it doesn't get infected.

Mother Tereasa

"Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work." she is asking, what did they do to deserve out hate, our disrespect, our turning heads. Nothing they did nothing. you cant stop the fallout, of money, pain, and family.

there are over 18,000,000 vacant homes in America, that is about enough for every homeless person to have 6.
