Big City Homeless

Idea

Has the number of homeless people significantly increased in large metropolitan areas? Folks without a permanent place for them to live are most often unable to keep regular, safe, secure and adequate city housing.

This problem bodes poorly for the future. Decades of research have shown the staggering societal costs of families with children in poverty. The kids grow up with less education and lower earning power. They are more likely to end up with drug addictions, psychological traumas, diseases, and could possibly end up in prison.
