Homelessness is a visible problem in big cities, and a largely invisible one in small towns and rural areas. This issue involves serious consequences for those living on the streets, in tent cities, or in their cars. Homeless people deal with unsanitary conditions, crimes inflicted against them, and an array of mental, emotional, and physical health problems. Homelessness affects young and old, single people and entire families, veterans, and LGBTQ+ individuals, among others. This incisive collection of articles examines the myriad issues faced by communities, activists, governments, and private charities when addressing this vulnerable population. Media literacy questions and terms are included to help readers further analyze news coverage and reporting styles.
