According to World Population Review, the United States has a population of single individuals that experience homelessness of 66.7%, and the remaining amount of them being families. In the past couple of years, the population of people who are homeless has increased nationally by almost one percent. While many organizations, like The HomeMore Project, have been trying to help tackle this issue, not much is being done by the government.
In the US, 600,000 people are experiencing homelessness, with 80,000 just in New York City. Every day, those with a full-time minimum wage job can barely pay rent. On the other hand, Finland has a total homeless population of 5,000, with zero in its capital of Helsinki. So, how did Finland get there?
