Growing homeless population and what can we do about it?
The other day a woman and her 3 month old infant were beaten in broad daylight by a homeless vagrant. What can we do about it? What laws can the city council enact?
Community outreach. There are many reasons for homelessness. An individual that can have several psycho-social dynamics going on. First things first. Assessing the situation:
1.The size of the homeless population.
2.Educational barriers for eg. reading, writing & language barriers.
3.Physical illness vs mental illness; many physical illnessess like people with untreated diabetes, renal disease, or malnutrition can often appear psychiatrically unstable.
4.Where do you get the funding from: you're trying to reduce violence in your neighborhood, look for State or local grant monies and create a service to provide to these individuals to obtain the supports they need.
