Homeless

A globally growing problem

Homelessness and Health

People who are homeless are 3-6 times more likely to get harmful diseases and/or illnesses. Some of the illnesses include tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease, skin infections, pneumonia and much more. These people then have no way to cure their illnesses because they cannot afford proper healthcare, which also decreases the amount of time they get to live.

Preventing Homelessness

To prevent homelessness we need to provide affordable housing, make healthcare accessible for everyone who needs it, and provide an income that allows us to be able to function in society. All of these things will be hard to get if we don't get everyone to pitch in!
