Many people have misconceptions about homeless people. Some might think the worst of the homeless people they walk by on the street. There are many stereotypes about the homeless. For example, many think that homeless have drinking problems or are addicted to illegal substances. People might believe that someone who is living on the streets is doing so because they are too lazy to work or they were not responsible with their money.
However, the truth is that there are many reasons that lead people to a life on the streets. Many homeless people have simply fallen on hard times. They are veterans, people who have recently been laid off, or people who have lost their homes from various circumstances.
