My chosen topic is Homeless in America. I explored this topic because there seems to be
a problem with homelessness which did not just start today. Homelessness have been in
existence for many years and I am certain for many years to come. I explored that have existed
many years ago and still, the fact of the matter remains.My rationale for selecting this topic is
delve deeper into the core of such an epidemic such as the cause, specific groups who experience
homelessness and what solutions are being done to remedy the situation. Homeless did not just
begin, it travels back many years yet, still exists. My intent is to examine, analyze and compare
and contrast homelessness in comparison to then versus now. I once believed that people are in
situations due to choice however, there are circumstances that lend to such quandary.
