  • 6. The Solutions
    • The state can ask for additional monies to provide program to its citizens based on the projected need of homeless individuals.
    • We need to have more providers in the city willing to aide homeless victims with clothes, food , and shelter.
    • We need to increase education through out the community to promote the giving spirit and to stop the stereotypes of homeless clients.
  • 7. Who are our clients vs. the Stereotypes
    • The Stereotypes
    • Most of the stereotypes of the homeless populations consist of
    • Junkies
    • Bums
    • Lazy people
    • Careless people
    • Uneducated
    • Ex-cons
    • The over looked population
    • Most people tend to over look the fact that most end up on the street due to economic jobs loss or sickness.
    • Doctors
    • Lawyers
    • Business professionals
    • Educated persons
    • All the above are not immune from becoming homeless. The problem if not resolved will result in a drain on our city resources for medical and can result into criminal activity.
