More Homeless Children Now Than Any Point in US History

by Michael Tennant, The Daily Sheeple:

The annual levels of homelessness among children have never been higher in the United States, according to a new comprehensive report released on Monday.

Prepared by the National Center on Family Homelessness, the report—America’s Youngest Outcasts (pdf)—shows that with poverty and inequality soaring in recent years, approximately 2.5 million children in 2013 found themselves without a roof over their head or place to call home. That number equals one in 30 American children nationally, and constitutes an 8 percent increase over the previous year.

    Homelessness is a massive problem that is getting even more massive with each passing year.

    In 2012, having been out of work for a while, and briefly homeless, I decided to use my ‘down time’ to help other people in similar situations. I spent almost the entire year volunteering for a Homelessness charity undertaking various roles.

    Although I helped many that would be considered as being the ‘stereotype’ of a homeless person, the MAJORITY were ordinary working Joes and Janes who had encountered some sort of ‘upset’ in thier lives (ie relationship breakdown, unemployment, rent hikes, illness, or a big unforseen bill), and had found themselves without a roof over thier heads.

    That is the point I would like to get accross early: THE MAJORITY of the people I helped were until very recently MIDDLE-CLASS.

    These previously middle-class people suddenly found themselves thrown down into the underclass (I can tell you from personal experience that becoming a member of the underclass comes as one heck of a shock to the system, leads to all sorts of other problems, and aint pleasent nor easy).

    Some of the people I came to help became truely desparate very quickly, sometimes within just days of hitting the streets/shelters/someones garage.

    It would take me quite a while to explain the incredible difficulties facing someone who looses thier job, thier health, thier home, and thier place in society, whilst everything continues as ‘normal’ for everyone else. The social isolation is very dramatic – as if they are in world looking through a window (or the skin of a bubble) into another world in which they no longer have any part.

    Getting thrown down into societies underclass (a class some people dont even know exists) and the social exclusion that come with that can be overwhelming for even the strongest of people. However, for those who have never mentally considered anything as bad as that could ever happen to them, it can be truely devastating – life changing at best, life ending at worst.

    And no, for somepeople thier is no Government asistance or benefits of any kind. Some people do slip through the net/cracks in the system.

    Now, I will stop myself from writing an essay here, as it would be easy for me to do so, having spent a bit of time homeless myself, and having spent almost a whole year helping a homelessness charity.

    What I want people to consider is that it could happen to YOU in a hearbeat, whatever strong and well prepared position you think you are in now. But for the Grace of God do you go there.

    One of the most significant (and likely largest if a genuine survey was done) homeless group would be what my co-volunteers called ‘the hidden homeless’. These are people who had previously been able to afford thier rent/mortage payments, but for one reason or another can no longer. They may still hold down jobs, but cannot afford to keep a roof over thier heads.

    The ‘hidden homeless’ can be found ‘sofa surfing’ from one friends couch to the next, night-after-night. The hidden homeless can be found in friends or families garages/basements/lofts/barns. The hidden homeless can be found in empty vacation homes, or empty business premises at night (perhaps even tucking themselves away at thier workplace).

    As the western economies implode we will see the number of people who cant make thier payments rise, and therefore the number of homeless will rise – from every social class and background.

    Next time you see a homeless person on the street, or hear about a co-worker or associate who has nowhere to live due to being ‘priced out’ or for any other reason, please remember that only by the grace of God are you not in thier place.

    The youtuber ‘MainePrepper’ (ex Special ops guy blown up in Iraq and now with a brain injury, yet still puts out loads of great prepper videos anyway) has just put out a timely video on giving to charity and supporting the Homeless. Perhaps SGT could post it:
