"As you pull out to negotiate the traffic you are unaware that you have just come face to face with homelessness. The young lady who served you is homeless. Left to find her way on the streets since the ripe old age of 15." PLEASE HOMES, NOT HOMELESS.

And it's getting worse and worse thanks to the 1% orcs that own our excuse for a government lock, stock and barrel. Fortunately, there is a way to fight back: VOTE!

People are making an effort to find answers.


From the article: some about The Shaw House, a local nonprofit homeless shelter

"Jess is not alone in the State of Maine; according to The State of Maine's Children's Cabinet there were 1141 children without a home in 2006. The statistics are even more shocking across the country with national organizations like Homeless Youth Among Us.Org quoting over a million children in the US living on the streets or couch surfing on any given day.

Organizations like The Shaw House, a local nonprofit homeless shelter try to come to terms with this population of homeless children, "We see kids with mental health issues, substance abuse issues, and criminal histories as often as we see kids without any of that list. Likewise, we see kids whose parents have mental health issues, substance abuse issues or criminal histories as frequently as we see kids whose parents don't." said Caseworker Judy Dembowski.

In Jess's case it was the break-up of her parents marriage that caused her world to turn upside down and marked the beginning or a personal nightmare full of fear, pain, and a sense of loneliness that never seems to go away."

While I agree with the sentiment, this is not a Science or Technology news item. Seeing too many non-related or marginal "science" submissions of late.

Science. Why is this article in the science section? Honestly, there needs to be some science on how to make sustainable homes and homesteads.
The hope is that maybe there will be some science about homes not homeless, that will help with sustainable green homes, and/or homesteads.
