On any given night in the Salt Lake City area, 1000 teenagers are homeless on the street. Most cases of youth homelessness are due to abuse, mental illness, aging out of foster care or sexual orientation. These young men and women are completely abandoned and are left to fend for themselves. Without a home, without a family, without support and without basic human necessities, these young vulnerable men and women are stuck in a labyrinth on the streets. Each day the homeless youth are faced with the obstacle of finding shelter and food- a privilege I don’t think twice about having.
Not too long ago, Hurricane Sandy struck the coast of New York with a breath taking force. Homes destroyed and businesses left in complete ruin. It's not surprising how many people are left without homes, yet people are not taking invasive action to help the 40,000 in need. Winter season is here and New York can get as cold as below 0. Almost half of the victims do not have shelter to protect from the coming cold, and hotels are full across the region.
Money matters in everyone’s eyes. Money is very important. When you think of money you say to yourself your good, but really a lot of money isn't enough.
This issue is a very personal issue for people. Everyone has problems when it comes to money, hands down. When people run into money situations they tend to lose their minds and try to do anything in the world for money. Money for survival is a problem that people go through every day.
