Overview of

Homeless and Homeless Issues in the World

Homelessness is a global challenge. The United Nations Human Settlements Program estimates that 1.6 billion people live in inadequate housing, and the best data available suggest that more than 100 million people have no housing at all. Homelessness is growing in many parts of the world, occurs in all nations, and has several negative impacts on individuals and on communities.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights defines “homeless” as those who do not live in a regular residence due to lack of adequate housing, safety, and availability. Homelessness indicates a state’s failure to guarantee access to safe, affordable, and adequate housing for all.

According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness report dated January 2020, there were about 580,466 people experiencing homelessness in America. Most were individuals (70 percent), and the rest were families with children. African Americans and indigenous people (including Native Americans and Pacific Islanders) remained considerably overrepresented among the homeless population compared to the U.S. Population.

Type of Homeless People


An unaccompanied homeless individual with a disabled condition who has been continuously homeless for a year or more or has had a minimum of four episodes of homelessness in the previous three years.


These are individuals who are currently homeless and have experienced at least three periods of homelessness in the previous year. These individuals are often younger and suffer from some type of disabling condition


These are individuals likely to be younger and generally enter a shelter or temporary housing system for only one brief stay. This situation could be the result of a catastrophic event or sudden life change.


This specifically refers to individuals temporarily living with others (or ‘couch-surfing’) without a guarantee that they will be able to stay long-term and without immediate prospects for acquiring permanent housing.

Here are the most common causes of homelessness in the United States.

Lack of Affordable Housing.

This issue is particularly prevalent on the coasts, both east and west. As housing costs skyrocket, people are being forced out of their apartments and homes, and they often have nowhere else to turn.


Without permanent and reliable work and income, the likelihood of a person ending up homeless is inevitably increased. Losing a job, or even dealing with a drastic cut in hours or wags, can lead to significant hardships for families and individuals.

Mental Illness.

Mental illness is an issue that seems to be causing more problems in the society. Often, the mentally ill are unable to find the appropriate care for their issues, leading them into a life of hardship, and eventually ending up without permanent place to say
