Homelessness is stigmatized, and many people unconsciously stereotype those who are unhoused. Often, we imagine someone experiencing homelessness as a middle-aged individual who is at fault for their state of being. However, this is not always true. Everyone makes bad choices, but homelessness is not necessarily the result of choices. More often, homelessness results from uncontrollable life events, whether that’s a car accident, losing a job, a sudden illness, or other events of that nature.
