Homelessness has become an epidemic in the U.S.  Both the homeless and the surrounding neighborhoods are victimized by this growing phenomenon.  There are nearly as many pathways to homelessness as there are homeless, but it is clear that mental illness and addiction are a large part of the problem.  For the sake of those trapped in the vicious cycle of homelessness and those whose lives are adversely affected by the homeless, we must do a better job of dealing with this complex, multi-faceted problem.
