“If we live in the so-called “land of opportunity," why would such a considerable amount of our population be so misfortunate?”
Azura Adams submitted a recognized essay to address our recent Student Voices Scholarship prompt – “Over 500,000 people are homeless in America. What are some of the issues involved and possible solutions?” Azura analyzes three major causes of homelessness, from insufficient income to foreclosure to domestic violence. If we as a society can help to address those problems at their core, we may then reduce homelessness as well. Azura goes further to propose a new solution, called Homes Building Hope, which is a novel nonprofit idea.
