The History of Homelessness in America, 1640-Present

 StreetWise - USA 07 July 2019

Throughout history, homelessness has been misunderstood in the US. “There is no such thing as ‘the homeless’. It’s a group of people just like any other —they’re individuals, they’re families, they’re old, they’re young, they’re sick, they’re healthy. People are much more complex than the diagnosis that they have.” (3265 Words) - By Ben Cook
