PROBLEMS BEHIND HOMELESSNESS Low National Wages ❏ National wage: $7.25 Cost of living in certain states: well above $10.00. ❏ “Declining wages have put housing out of reach for many workers: in every state, more than the minimum wage is required to afford a one- or two-bedroom” ❏ Almost 15 % of the American population was in poverty last year (U.S. Census Bureau). ❏ 47 million in poverty, the largest number ever in American history.
  4. 4. High Unemployment ❏ According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics unemployment is currently listed at 5.5% ❏ Forbes stated that the real rate of unemployment is 15.8%. ❏ Without employment many youth are forced to find shelter outside of the traditional family settings. ❏ Joblessness coupled with residential instability forces many individuals to become chronically homeless. PROBLEMS BEHIND HOMELESSNESS
  5. 5. Lack of Affordable Housing ❏ Ever since the 2009 recession the United States has dealt with extremely high rates of rent coupled with stagnant rates and decreased job growth. ❏ “The lack of affordable housing has lead to high rent burdens, overcrowding, and substandard housing.” ❏ The elimination of affordable housing such as single-room apartments has resulted in a massive increase in the amount of homelessness.
