The residents of Los Angeles also give money to the homeless whenever and wherever they can. If taxes were to go up it would be harder for the homeless to help the residents. Homeless people in Los Angeles are very well provided for by the city and the programs, now they have to be willing to take risks and opportunities to help
The home owners that are taking care of these less fortunate citizens may not have experience the pain and hardship they have been so there might be conflicts in the homes that can cause injuries to the home owner, homeless, or both of them. This ethical issue is slowly growing each year and it needs to be stopped. I propose a solution where cities should open more community shelters but out of the way of the populated area then there won’t be a lot of conflict and can help businesses bloom but is still in a convenient destination for the homeless to get to.
“564,708 people are homeless on any given night in America” (National Alliance to End Homelessness). And these numbers are only growing. There is no reason why that number should not decrease in the United States of America. While feeding the homeless and temporary shelter is only a short-term fix, I believe we can implement more permanent solutions. Funding to build homeless programs and help mainstream them back to stability is something I aim to work towards as a Social Worker.

If someone is homeless, it is a common belief that they are more inclined to criminal activity; therefore less homelessness could equal less crime. Homelessness is not discriminatory and can happen to anyone at any time. “Sometimes it 's easy to walk by because we know we can 't change someone 's whole life in a single afternoon.

Both Derek Thompson’s article “Should you give money to homeless people?” and Bobby Magill’s article “Grand Junction comes to terms with homeless” claim that a substantial gift of direction and support instead of loose change will create the greatest, lasting impact in the homeless’ lives. Although both authors successfully use rhetorical strategies to make their arguments, Bobby Magill’s
A nurturing, safe zone for children with elevated stress due to the fact they are homeless. Quite obviously, it provides parents the opportunity to find jobs and keep them to provide for their children keeping them off the streets. Funneling federal money into this program will not only cut otherwise wasted money from proven, unnecessary programs for the homeless that do not work. Such as short term shelters, and money vouchers that lead to surges in homeless E.R. visits, jails, prisons, TANF, and food stamps an expensive and unnecessary taxpayer expense.
How should we help the homeless and should we try even though they may not help themselves? I figure that is the most important question that needs to be answered if anything is to be done. Of the essays I analyzed Awalt's "Brother Don't Spare a Dime" was the one essay that went against the idea of helping the homeless because the author thinks it's their own fault for being the way they are. The other two essays are easier on the homeless and want to lend a helping hand. In "Address Unknown: Homeless in Contemporary America" James Wright thinks that helping the homeless by giving them more benefits that they will be more prosperous.
Being the only one of its kind in DuPage County, the transitional housing program for the homeless known as the LCpl Nicholas Larson Home for Veterans claim they “Strive to develop and provide unique and innovative services to those we serve” (MSHV); and a 71% success rate after 9 months proves their effectiveness. A full-time case manager and full-time house staff provide the wide array of services to those in-house and on their own, and with the high hopes the organization holds for themselves and their community, maybe the MSHV can help close the gap between homeless and in-need veterans and the help that is provided to them.
It is not fear how the uses the government money which are the taxes we paid for every single thing we buy every day. According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, government spends around 168 million annually for homeless programs apart from polices courts, emergency services, lawyers, and hospitals. This is affecting our economy since this money could be used for schools, children or woman with cancer, for medicine, to improve salaries, bridges and create more business to increase jobs. In addition, this people do not contribute the society financially. Another key point, plenty of them uses the money to buy drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
