These Park Benches Welcome The Homeless Instead Of Rejecting Them
Because homelessness is such a huge social issue many cities are making park benches that turn into shelters. Rather than just ignoring the issue of the homelessness, some people are trying to make small efforts to help.
One of the major challenges facing veterans is homelessness. Of the 636,017 homeless people in the United States, 67,495 are veterans. Veterans are twice as likely to become chronically homeless as other Americans. This is due, in part, to veterans’ heightened risk of unemployment, foreclosure and poverty.
