The figure is between 10,000 and 12,000 found homeless in Denmark. They prey on each other as well as people passing by who they manage to steal from. Since they have no family or relatives and no hope for the future, they are living each day as if it were the last, causing them to become outlaws, which as a result is a threat to the security of the community we live in. Most homeless people have become accustomed to life on the street. Some homeless people are staying in residential institutions but they do not get much sleep when they must share space with ten to twenty others.
According surveys, I think high unemployment rate and low employment rate, mental illness and domestic violence can cause people becoming homeless in America. Poverty is closely linked to homeless. Poverty due to high employment rate and low employment rate can trap individuals and can lead to homelessness. Although the United States is recovering from the worst financial crisis in 2008 since the Great Depression, there are still many homeless people suffering from the crisis. Many homeless people who have jobs and can't avoid homelessness, escaping homelessness is virtually impossible for those without a job.
