Ok again, where are they supposed to go? Also that’s a misconception. A ton of homeless have jobs or are children. The stereotypical ‘drug addled’ and ‘mentally ill’ homeless person is the Witchy Woman Halloween T-Shirt in contrast I will get this version that is tossed around so much to 1) make you believe this is the norm and 2) to garner less sympathy for the homeless. Why do you think people are so nasty about giving them any sort of aid (they’ll spend it on drugs!!) or housing (they’ll trash it!) It’s because of propaganda/media feeding this exact image to you. If you want a real thinker, look at how the ‘people harmed by the opiate crisis’ are portrayed to ‘homeless druggies’. most homeless people are not drug addicted or mentally ill, but those people are sleeping on a friend’s couch or in their car. you will never see them or know they’re homeless, and odds are they won’t be homeless for long. unfortunately, any homeless person you see on the actual streets or in an illegal encampment is in fact highly likely to be on drugs or mentally ill or both.

I’ve worked with the Witchy Woman Halloween T-Shirt in contrast I will get this homeless. It’s true, a majority of homeless folks I met had mental health issues or drug addictions or both. Being homeless is more than lack of money, it’s lack of social capitol as well. Having no friends, family, or place to go. This is often caused by strained relationships due to mental health or drug abuse. Let me point out that these folks still deserve sympathy and help, but it’s not a problem you can just throw money at to fix. Hell I’m poor but I have housing and money to spend on seeing a doctor/therapy and I still can’t kick my drug addiction and bad habits. Shit is hard to change and it takes so much willpower. It would be near impossible if I didn’t have a warm bed/shower every night.
