With a little under a million people homeless in the U.S. alone, there is a shockingly large amount of people in the world without homes. They have to live day to day, without a home or even basic utilities like electricity or running water. They even have to live off the generosity of the more fortunate. This can range widely, with some days either netting $0 or not much more above that. They cannot even buy a full meal some days.

Even some people that society would deem as regular citizens may have been homeless at some point in time, so it can affect everybody. One such example would be William Shatner, who had to live out of his car for weeks on end.

How To Help

You can help the homeless in a variety of ways, the simplest being to just hand some spare money to them so that they can buy essential things, such as food, water, and clothing.

Another way of helping would be donating food, clothes, or even your time to a homeless shelter. This will provide help to the homeless and help them get back on their feet.

You can also just give them the things they need directly, such as buying them a meal or giving them a coat.
