Each night, hundreds of thousands of people are homeless across the country and the world. Some of these people are chronically homeless, while others have temporary lost their shelter. The reasons why they are homelessness are complex. They include a combination of factors such as

*Poverty

*Unemployment

*Lack of affordable housing

*Mental and Substance use disorders

*Trauma and Voilence

*Divorce

*Disabilities

*Domestic Voilence

*Sudden serious illness

*Justice-system involvement

*Death of a partner or parents

Poor health can contribute to homelessness. And being homeless can contribute to poor health. Many of the problems that homeless people face can make their health worse, including

*Limited access to health care

*Problems getting enough food

*Voilence

*Trouble staying safe

*Unsanitary living conditions

*Stress

*Exposure to severe weather

Some of the common health problems that homeless people may have include,

*Lung diseases, including bronchitis, tuberculosis and pneumonia

*HIV/AIDS

* Mental health problems

*Malnutrition

*Wounds and skin infections

*Substance use problems

Many homeless people are dealing with trauma. They may have been abused or assaulted. This includes homeless children, who are at risk for emotional and behavioral problems.

Contact your local homelessness assistance agency to get the help you need, such as access to shelters, health centres and free mails
