HOMELESSNESS

WHY IS IT A PROBLEM?

“As many as 3.5 million Americans are homeless each year. Of these, more than 1 million are children and on any given night, more than 300,000 children are homeless”, From the website, http://www.homeaid.org/homeaid-stories/69/top-causes-of-homelessness . Out of those 3.5 million about 700 die each year. Weather its because they didn't have enough food or they got beaten up on the streets or anything there are too much homeless people and we need to help. “A homeless person may be someone who lost their job, a runaway child, or someone with a mental illness. One of the first steps in helping people is to see them as individuals and to find out what they need. Notice them; talk to them. Most are starved for attention.” From the website, https://www.justgive.org/donations/help-homeless.jsp . If you want to know how you can help you can go to your local homeless shelter. And give them some of your old shoes or some some cans. You can also help with food drives and much more.

PLAN FOR ACTION

Positive:

The outcome when people give to the poor/homeless like food drives and clothing drive make a really big change in the community and in the peoples life. If everyone just donated $5.00 we would save millions of lives each cent would be worth it. Remember anything helps anything.



Negative:

700 hundred people die every year in our country, from not getting enough food, or from natural disasters and from beaten on the streets. What if we could cut that number in half. Just saving that many people each year we would eventually save 3,500 people in a decade. You might think that the homeless world is far away from where you are now but it really is much closer than you might think. Remember anything helps anything.
