  1. I think that it is awesome and very important that there are resources available for this minority group because otherwise,they would have nothing.A lot of people think that a homeless person put themselves in the situation because of certain choices they have made, but not all homeless people have made bad decisions that caused them to become homeless. Some are just not able to afford certain things and are attained with certain problematics that make things much harder for them when they try to get ahead
