Transcript

  • 1. Homelessness is Where the Disheartened Are
    The Invisible Society
  • 2.
    • In 2007 3.5 million people homeless in the U.S.
    • 3. Of the 3.5 million homeless 1.35 million were children
    • 4. 38.5% of the estimated homeless are children under 18
    • 5. Accurate count for total homelessness is currently impossible
    Homelessness Does Not Discriminate
  • 6. Homelessness is Not a Crime
    “The simple fact is that until the face of homelessness through the eyes of our society has changed, there can be no real change or solution”
  • 7. What Can Be Done to Help
    • A clearinghouse database would allow each homeless individual to register as a homeless person.
    • 8. Registration terminals would be widely available in public places.
    • 9. This would create less repetitive paperwork for everyone.
    • 10. Would also yield a much clearer demographic of the homeless population.
  • How to Spread the Message
    A mass media campaign using a public service announcement would help change the preconceived misconception of homeless individuals.
  • 11. What Next?
    Individual organizations that offer assistance would channel assistance into one agency, making a stronger organization with more revenue, sources, and ideas with which to work.
  • 12. “Homelessness is a social illness - not a social class.”
    • Everyone deserves a home
    • 13. These aggressive steps will make life-altering differences
    • 14. Allow homeless to become homeless to be self-sufficient members of society
  • Homelessness can Happen to Anyone
    “Not all homeless people are liars and thieves. There are a lot of good people who have had bad things happen to them.”
