Although, I am sure there are many others that chose the topic of homelessness for this blog, I am also going to discuss the issue of homelessness. Not just homelessness, but also the issue of poverty in the twin cities community. I am not writing about these topics because they are the easiest to write about or because it just seems like the topic of choice because that is what everyone else decided to do. I am choosing to write about poverty and homelessness because I personally believe that they are the most prevelent social-design issues that are consistent with the twin cities area.
Poverty is an issue with all the metro areas in the world. And of course, such is the case with twin cities area. And because of this fact it is evident that it is impossible to completely abolish the fact that there will always be a precentage of the population that will be either homeless or living in a state of poverty. The only true manner in which there is to deal with this social design issue is to try to reduce that number to the smallest amount as possible and to give those people that are underprivledged as much help as humanly possible. And across the world there are many people doing just this, but it is obvious that these individuals are in need of much more.
Some possible ways of dealing with the issues of poverty and homelessness take a good amount of effort from those that are more privledged. Of these ways in which we could help the needy involve building shelters and developing more low-income housing. I guess these are some of the best ways of dealing with the problem at hand, but there has to be more effort put into these projects. Either that or we need to discover a new way of doing things. If we knew the solution to the problem obviously there would be no problem but we don't. Hopefully, for the sake of those in need, we will find a long-term solution to this problem sometime in the near future.
