Abstract or Introduction

Homelessness in the United States with the concepts of Finland.

Statements like, "they are just lazy”, are sometimes used to describe people who are homeless. These kinds of hasty remarks are deplorable because those, who think this way, could also become homeless for reasons not related to laziness, which can allow someone to reflect on themselves. There are many components that may contribute to homelessness, such as drug abuse, mental health, joblessness, or the lack of resources. These factors along with homelessness all feed into each other like a negative feedback loop, making a person feel stuck and hopeless. A YouTube channel, Yes Theory, epitomizes the struggle of homelessness and emphasizes how much life should be appreciated. In one its video, people are challenged to live for 24-hours either on the streets without any money or in the Nevada desert without any clothes. While these challenges can be entertaining, they can also be very humbling and illuminating. So, what is the most appropriate course of action for combating homelessness? And are programs that are focused on it genuinely helping? As a multifactorial problem, homelessness could be combated more effectively 1) by debunking the negative perspectives of homelessness and becoming more cognizant of each homeless person’s individual story and 2) by implementing other strategies at a government level, such as the one that Finland currently uses.
