Most stereo types of homeless people put them into two categories: drug users and the mentally ill. But, I have seen many other reasons for homelessness that include job loss, credit card debt, divorce, disabling injuries, hospital bills for major illness or surgeries, sexual addictions, spending addictions, being scammed by financial institutions, being under educated, having a low paying job, living in a high rent area. The list can go on forever.
Here is a link to the Sacramento Homeless Blog. The article links childhood stress and how it affects future success.
