Homelessness is one of the largest, most depressing epidemics in the entire world. It is so sad and disgusting to see how we, as human beings, are treating another living person by not giving them the help they need. A lot of people, especially those living within the city, pass by a homeless person on a near daily basis without so much as a hello, let alone offering any spare change that happens to be jingling around in their pockets. It is truly horrible and disheartening. You should know some things about homelessness, though, so here are ten of them.
There are over 50 states in the United States, and given that, it’s a bit shocking to find out that one state — California — is responsible for 1/5th of the entire population of homeless individuals.
California may account for twenty percent of all of the homeless population, but in total, California, New York, Florida, Texas, and Massachusetts account for over half of the entire homeless in the world.
