Action for the Vulnerable
The main causes of homelessness include mental illness, traumatic life events, unemployment, lack of affordable housing, substance abuse, violence, and domestic abuse. Experts on homelessness also acknowledge that virtually every homeless individual has endured some form of hardship or trauma that psychologically detaches them from society. Candidates for office must take responsibility for these forgotten citizens, and provide solutions to curb housing insecurity and ultimately homelessness.
