These are people who, generally through no fault of their own, become without shelter, or an address to be able to get employment or subsistence. Some resort to crime or drugs. Most are looking for a chance at life, again.

Help writing a homelessness poem?
Try to use words that you think describe homeless people or the actions or feelings of them. You can write in first person (like i did) or 3rd person. Here is an example of a poem I wrote. Hope this helps! Life As a Homeless Teen My home can be anywhere, everywhere. I am a nomad. One night I am sleeping on a bench, The next it's the cold hard cement of a parking garage. Some days I may have a plate of food, And sometimes I will go days without eating. Wandering the streets is dangerous, Especially the parts of town I roam. I am tired, lonely, and scared. Does anybody care? I feel betrayed and forgotten. I am constantly hiding and running from the police. I am ashamed of myself and my family. I am embarrassed in front of the public. As I walk by the school, I see girls in pretty dresses and boys in nice slacks. All I have is a torn t-shirt and some ripped pants I found in the dumpster. The only possessions I hold are the torn rags on my body. I beg for food and money day and night. I want to be loved. I want to have a home.
What are facts about homelessness?
I only know 5 facts about homelessness which are: 5 Facts about Homelessness You don't have to be living on the street to be homeless. You may be legally classed as homeless if you are sleeping on a friend's sofa, staying in a hostel, suffering from overcrowding, or other bad conditions. Homelessness can often be avoided if you act quickly and get the right help. If you have nowhere to stay, call Shelter's helplinecall or you can use their directory to find a local advice centre where you can talk to someone in person. Alternatively, you can download a copy of their handy advice booklet, Homeless? If you are homeless or have been threatened with eviction you may have legal rights to stay in (or return to) your home. You may also be entitled help from the council and/or social services. You still have the right to claim benefits and the right to vote. You can ask your local council's housing department for help if you've nowhere to stay or are likely to lose your home in the next 28 days. The council is legally required to give you advice and help you to find a place to live. Depending on your situation, they may have to provide accommodation for you. There are sometimes ways to avoid becoming homeless, even when the situation appears hopeless. Some of these are self-help remedies. For others, you may need specialist help.

What is the personality of homeless people?
Whoa! 1) you cant just fit the personality of hundreds if not thousands into ONE personality!!!! 2) There are no two personalities exactly alike. Very similar maybe, but not exact. And the personalities of homeless people would vary differently from situation, age, character, etc. It is impossible to guess how they would feel, as I have never been in their situation.

Why do rich people not help homeless people?
I find that the wealthy help more homeless than you may think. Think about all of the homeless shelters in America, food banks, that are funded by non-profit organizations. These organizations mostly depend on wealthy and generous donors, who donate their money by the thousands, even millions to help the needy. Even if that program is funded by the government, the top 5% of wage earners pay 53.25% of government programs in the United States. So chances are, that government program to help the homeless is funded by the wealthy by at least 50%. Alternate Answer: In the US most homeless shelters and food kitchens are privately funded. The bulk of the funding comes from the middle and lower classes. It is estimated that the top 25% income earners provide less than 10% of the donations of money and 0% of the donations of time. As for federally funded programs. The top 5% of wage earners typically pay a lower actual/real tax rate then the rest of us do and only end up paying 10%-15% of the budget. It has been shown that the top 2% of the wage earners actually pay no taxes in the US. Now why do they not help the poor? Simple, to do what is necessary to become rich one has to be narcissistic enough to focus exclusively on ones career and paycheck. These people need to keep the capital in their own pockets to increase their earnings thus taught themselves not to give. The middle and lower classes are typically Christian and follow a teaching of tithing and will give a high percentage of the wealth and time. This ability to help others is also what prevents them from doing what is necessary to become the rich person.
Can you assume that Christian fundamentalist ministers are really just greedy businessmen because they do nothing for the homeless?
I'm sure some are, but it isn't possible to generalize to that degree. *There are many wolves in sheeps clothing, also known as false profits. They are the ones that Jesus referred to when He said "You will say Lord, Lord to me and I will reply, Depart from me ,I never knew you." These money hungry, self-serving preachers will surely meet their doom. However, there are also many preachers and pastors who are sincere.There is no way to know what all some do that is honored in God's sight. The many that despise Pat Robertson don't know enough about him. He has a huge charity called Operation Blessing that supplies needs to people all over the world. Look it up for yourself. He is one of the few men of God that isn't afraid to speak the truth. The fact that so many unbelievers dislike him just makes him seem more Godly to me, for Jesus said that his own would be despised. Look that up also.

What problem do uneducated people face?
The affects of lack of education are broad. Lack of education spawns poverty. There is the likelihood that they will never find a job that provides an adequate income. Due to insufficient income uneducated people often must live in crime ridden areas and so are more often victims of crime. Uneducated people do not know where to find help to improve their situation and so their children are at risk. They have inadequate healthcare. Lack of education is often self-perpetuating and continues to plague succeeding generations. The affects of lack of education are broad. Lack of education spawns poverty.

How do homeless people manage to survive?
There are many ways that homeless people survive on the streets, many of them are listed below, but there are many others that are not listed. Necessity happens to be the mother of ingenuity and you will find a lot of that on the streets. Hunger is the perfect cure for vanity and pride. Homeless people have three major issues: Hunger, Shelter and Safety. Eating from garage cans or digging in dumpsters behind fast-food restaurant. Restaurant or grocery stores is probably the most common hunger mitigation strategy. Go to the local library and ask about homeless projects, and maps to the locations of where there are soup kitchens Go to welfare or social services asking for information Go to homeless charities for help. Try to buy a simple fishing rod to fish the local rivers. Bait could simply be worms. Shelter includes protection from the rain and/or sun; someplace to lay down and sleep; Clothing is critical. Most homeless people can obtain a minimum amount of clothing from shelters, even of the shelter it self is full. Go To Libraries For Warmth Road Bridges for shelter from the preferably ones not near rivers, as the morning mist, etc. Sleep under park benches, card board for mattress. use the seat above as a framework like a tent a put some waterproof covering on top of the seat to retain heat, and protect from the elements. Tree, can be used as simple wig-wam with proper materials Dig a earth sleeping bag. If you have enough time dig simple earth blanket. Material Rucksack Hat Gloves Whistle Torch (Wind-up) Thermos Flask (Hot Water) Hot water bottles (Fill up from late night public toilets) Black Bin liners to retain heat, keep things dry Plastic bags storage Newspapers good insulator Cardboard simple mattress. Shower gel for cleaning, shaving etc. Cut Throat Razors Face flannel Towel Toilet Paper/Book Ass Flannel/Sponge (Roman Method) String/Elastic Nylon Sleeping Bag/Aluminium Coat Cleanliness Do as the Victorians did, do a stand up wash. Buy some shower gel, run some hot water into a basin add shower gel. Wash yourself from top to toe. Hair only wash if is not too cold. Use different public toilets, and convenience store, try not to use the same place every day. If using convenience stores, make sure that you do at a time where there are not many people around. Probably most unlikely to have people around from 9:30 - 11:30 14:30 - 16:30. Check when the cleaning times are? Safety means staying alert. Don't tell people you are homeless unless you trust them or you think they can help Not just other homeless people, but non-homeless people who prey on the weak. The will either form groups or small communities, stick together at least in pairs, or even collect a stray dog to serve as a companion and alert them to harm. Being homeless is a reality, and it is not just hobo's and bums on the street. The next time you see a homeless person, ask your self at what point would you eat from a garbage can. Hunger does not play favorites, and your whole life will change perspective if you ever reach that point. Stay focused and you will survive. Don't look at others of what they have and you don't have Don't let others judge you in anyway. Don't abuse them either When people abuse you? Don't reply to their words, just turn away and smile. In some ways they have it harder than you. If in danger blow your whistle many times, and shout out for help! Do NOT judge yourself in thought, mind, or feelings, of your past, present or future. Accept help if you need it. You have survived You will survive! ☺
Names for homeless people?
Often people who live on the streets will use the term "homeless" to themselves, particularly if they have been in and out of institutions that use that term explicitly. "Hobo" is a more antiquated term meant for communities of individuals who travel frequently and make money by begging, though it is still used on occasion. Often the terms "on the streets", "between jobs", or "living outdoors" are used. I have even heard people call it "urban camping." Most frequently though, homeless people refer to themselves and their friends by their first names, just like the rest of us do. They may see themselves as disadvantaged, or they may have never known any other way of life. The blog: http://namesofthehomeless.blogspot.com has several stories from these individuals about how they view themselves and "life on the streets."

Why are there more men that are colorblind then women?
It has to do with the slight differences in the DNA, ANSWER Colorblindness is sex linked trait. Females are XX and Males are XY. The colorblind gene is only on the X chromosome so if a male has the gene on the X chromosome then he will be colorblind. Females can have it on one X chromosome, but not the other and not be colorblind; however, they are a carrier and can pass it on. For a female to be colorblind both X chromosomes must have the gene.
