-Addiction. I met a deaf guy in Vegas two weeks ago. He mentioned he played poker with me and that I showed him the exit to the tournament once some time ago. I don't remember him but he lives in Vegas, homeless, mooches SSDI, and loves gambling.
-People who just foreclosed (a spike of recent)...
I would put more focus on battered women. Give them easy way out, set them up with security. Security = jobs, housing, a foundation for them to stand on so they're whole and good. That way they're not homeless, and doing the things women were asking me for in Vegas....
One is 50 kid in USA homeless every year. I knew young women that homeless in Cal. I was so sad to learn about this as I knew the women when they where kids. I no longer lived in Calf. at the time. If I did I would had let them stay at my house until they got back on their feet. I tried to help a homeless guy find a place to sleep but the shelter had no more room! They had 10 more people staying there than they had room for! I was told the number of homeless people was getting higher all the time! Some people formed a group to find homes to rent for homeless people in my city and towns near us. I am not sure how successful the group was in helping homeless people find homes. I called few times to help but I was never called back! People can be very snobby in my city!
