Homelessness

HOMELESSNESS:

  • Around the world, 76% of homeless persons are males.
  • The sex disparity is particularly severe in Taiwan, China, and Japan.

Strategies and Solutions:

  • Courageously speak out when the problem of male homelessness is misrepresented or ignored.
  • Participate in World Homeless Day, observed each year on October 10.
  • Policies:
    • Ending homelessness requires a multifaceted approach encompassing policy interventions, social programs, and community engagement.
    • Governments must prioritize affordable housing initiatives, social welfare programs, and supportive policies to prevent and alleviate homelessness.
    • Collaboration between government agencies, non-profit organizations, and grassroots initiatives is crucial to providing holistic support services, including healthcare, mental health counseling, and vocational training.
