Dear Future President,
Have you ever driven down a street and saw people on the side of the road, begging for money to survive? You probably have knowing the amount of homeless people in America is at an all-time high. This issue has been progressing as far back as the 1980’s. The homeless community in America is out of control, especially in the more populated areas. Homelessness is a huge problem that needs to be addressed by our community and our government. To fix this we need build more homeless shelters and soup kitchens, start more food and clothing drives, and finally we need to create more scholarships, so that people can get jobs and homes.
There are a variety of homeless people in America, some have families and children to care for, some are sick, mentally challenged or disabled and can’t work. As of 2015 America’s rate of homeless people was 564,708. This is a huge problem, but there’s ways to fix it, for example one ways is building more homeless shelters and soup kitchens. I’m not saying to just give houses and money away, but I’m saying that while people are trying to earn money you can make their life a bit easier by letting them stay in shelters.
The homeless community is up to 1 million to 2 million. This is outrageous maybe if these people had a better education in life they wouldn’t have gotten to the point of homelessness in the first place. Have you ever thought that maybe our country would benefit more if we had more education choices? Out of all the homeless people a majority of them are uneducated. If the government created more scholarships and education options to help the families that can’t afford for them or their children to go to college then the amount of homelessness in America would decrease drastically.
We also need start more clothing and food drives for the homeless people that have children or that are disabled. The homeless community in the US consists of individuals, families, veterans and youth. Starting more food drives is a thing that needs the governments and the community’s help. Also we need instead of throwing clothes out when they don’t fit anymore; we can give them to the homeless people that need them. This is another problem that needs to be fixed in order to help the people that aren’t able to work and earn money.
These problems are all fixable but there not even being thought about. Even though our government and past presidents haven’t done anything you can be the one that does. You can set up homeless campaigns, build more homeless shelters and soup kitchens. You can be the president that makes a difference, the choice is yours.
