Homelessness With Children
In Tarrant County, 6,700 people were homeless last year. Of that 1,541 were children. On a larger scale, children make up 39% of the world's homeless population. Some of the reasons for this is that parents might have mental illness, abuse their children, have substance abuse problems, or have financial insecurity. Many times children were in foster care and ran away and ended up on the streets. On some occasions, parents can't take care of their children, and often times get evicted from their house and end up living on the streets. We can make a change, and help the 53,000 children in the country living on the streets each year. Donate to your local homeless shelter and make a difference. #helpthehomeless2k16
Major Causes of Homelessness
Unemployment and Homelessness
Unemployment is one of the many, many,many things that cause homelessness. Let's start with an example, there is this one person that is already in a bad or uncomfortable situation, and he/she wants to get a job at a place and he does have a high school diploma. Very often people without a high school diploma don't get jobs, so that is why we are trying to spread awareness to help get food,water,etc...
So if you want to help you can tell the homelessness where shelters and food pantries are. You can also volunteer at your local homeless shelters and your local food banks.
