In our community there are many problems, some we can't control. One bigger problem that has grown over the years is the number of homeless people. As you go through parts of downtown you will see many people lying on benches in parks, asking for money, and trying to get food.
These people are most of the time homeless and just trying to make it through the day or week. They could go days with not being able to eat or drink a full meal. Many don't have the money to support themselves or their families. Some might have kids and still have to make sure they are safe and healthy. But, when they ask for help usually people don't do all they can do.
I think today people don't know who to trust. You could see someone standing on the side of the road asking for money, when really they may just want it for drugs. There many other options you could choose instead of money. You could go buy and give it to them so they will have something to eat.
To help these homeless people we could add gardens downtown for the homeless and can get free food. We could also supply more homeless shelters in spots more populated with homeless people. Also the government could supply some people with small apartments that they can pay off with work. These are just some ways we could start to help more, there are many more.
