I have been volunteering with the Salvation Army Street Outreach program in Perth helping to feed homeless people.
I agree with the other commenter that there is a small number of homeless people who chose to be on the streets. I was surprised when I asked one man how long he had been on the streets for? His answer was 17 years. When I exclaimed wow that’s a long time and asked if anyone had tried to help him find accomodation in that time, he explained that being on the streets was by choice.
I would be interested in hearing what people’s solution to the homeless issue would be.
