Over half a million of people are homeless (Semuels 1). Some states have more homeless people in them than others. California, for example, has the highest amount of homeless with over 170,000 without a home (NAEH 1). All types of people are homeless. Veterans, singles, and families are all homeless (Oldtimer 1). This is a conflict that needs to be handled.
The government is trying to fix it. They have at nearly every level, but are finding difficulty in doing so (Semuels 1). People have gone to the extent of trying to go to jail, or hurt themselves just to get a restful place to sleep (Semuels 1). However, there are alternatives. One example of these alternatives is a homeless shelter (Semuels 1). They are all over the U.S. and there are some still being built.
No matter how hard we try, there will still be homeless people. Some choose some don't choose, but the government should do more to solve this major problem.
