Systematic Change and Government Intervention Could Reduce Homelessness

By

Fall 2018 Student Voices scholarship runner-up, Samantha Anderson, explores how our society can reduce or even eliminate homelessness“Situational homelessness is an issue that has caught many Americans by surprise. This mainly because the economy has outgrown them and left many workers behind who can hardly make ends meet when facing financial troubles. This is in no way the fault of the person who experiences homeless, and it is on society to fill in the gaps where the market fails by providing the opportunity to succeed,” concludes Samantha Anderson, a runner-up in the Fall 2018 Student Voices scholarship program.

Samantha-HeadshotSamantha recognizes that while there can be characteristic traits in the homeless population including mental illness or substance abuse, often socioeconomic status is a key determinant forcing the lower-waged population out of their homes with rent hikes as urbanization continues, especially in the largest cities in the country, like San Francisco.
