Places like Houston, New York, and Los Angeles have the most homeless people. Sure they have shelters and other things, but these cities are also some of the meanest to homeless.
No phone No car No house No money to get started
There is usually ZERO family help for them… So they tend to want to be welcome by gangs members. 100,000 children in L.A are in gangs most murders by age 12, 13, or 14
Most children of homeless parents tend to be in gangs for money and do drugs to ease the pain which just makes it worse
1 in 10 homeless children accomplish much in their lives. No place to do homework Usually on drugs fail drug test Drop out of school to try an help their family
It is estimated that 1.5 million more people will become homeless in the next 2 years. Which means a lot less room in the homeless shelters.
