Chris Gardner's story
What exactly is homelessness?
Homelessness is defined as the condition of people without a regular dwelling. There are several factors that can cause homelessness. Some of those factors include job loss, natural disasters, and simply being thrown out of your home by your own family. About 3.5 million people are living on the streets without a home in America alone right now. Homelessness is a serious issue that needs to be looked into more than it already is. There needs to be more organizations that help homeless people who are trying but simply can not obtain a home. Even if you do not want to join an organization like that, you should atleast take the time to make a donation to one.
Everyday, helpless people like the lady shown above are stranded on the streets with nothing but a few personal belongings
