Homeless housing exclusion is increasing but not everyone is roofless

Homeless housing exclusion is increasing  and the most disturbing change is due to COVID 19 effect on the economy

Most people do not see people who are homeless because the media has shown images untidy, dirty, and looking like drunken tramps sleeping in the street. We only see  those who are usually roofless (category 1.10)

Mothers and children sleeping in their car, Business persons going through a tough time, Rape victims without support often find themselves out of work and homeless, people staying with friends. The list below shows the different types of homelessness and housing exclusion. Please note: We are aware of the homeless housing exclusion is increasing in war zones and areas of conflict and the result of terrorist activity but our list doesn’t include these.

We try to provide the world with information because our team realised that the world was becoming more dangerous and countries would not be able to cope with the changes. Team Jane has been working for a long time building our 21st Century Family Survival Guide.

During the Pandemic during the first 6 months of 2020 the world has changed beyond people’s imagination

If you know someone that are homeless do what you can to help.

Meanwhile here is a list of various homeless categories. For example, Group 10 describes domestic violence victims and or their children are technically homeless because they have nowhere else to go and living under a threat of harm.
