David Navarro's curator insight, April 7, 2017 12:59 AM
this here is a video i watched on homelessness in Japan. Comparing the U.S. homelessness and Japan homelessness, homelessness in japan is considered an embarrassment, rather than it being sad and feeling bad for the homeless. Although, theres a difference between the 2  countries. From visual experience being that i live in the U.S, homelessness is found anywhere and everywhere,  but i rarely see homeless people living in tents and if i do, they are always filthy. Here in japan, the tents the homeless build are very well built and clean, they even take off their footwear and leave it sitting outside before they enter their tent. 

Nagasaki is a japans high school graduate that became homeless. he sleeps in the streets and travels in a train to cheaper cities so he can buy items for cheap. when he can, he stays at a place where he has unlimited internet, a computer, a chair, and free food and beverages all for 8 pounds (money). He tries to stay there when he can and he prefers staying there than the streets.

Closing of downtown shelter could put more homeless on the streets - Atlanta Journal Constitution

Closing of downtown shelter could put more homeless on the streets - Atlanta Journal Constitution | Support of the Homeless | Scoop.it

Closing of downtown shelter could put more homeless on the streetsAtlanta Journal ConstitutionBy Steve Visser Midtown boosters, downtown power brokers and Atlanta city officials are close to winning a decade-long battle to close a massive homeless...

 

1. the subject of the collum is closeing a homeless  shelter in Atlanta

2.Facts given:

     - The city of Atlanta wants to close a shelter that has been open for fifteen years

     - In closing this, it will release the many homeless men in the shelter to the streets, where there is already a documented 2,000 homeless people

     -The united Way, the orginazation taking over the  homeless shelter, proposes they can fin homes for the 500 men  in the shelter now, which is laughable.

3. The writer disagrees with the homeless shelter being shut down, not becuase of moral opinions, but the amount of money and lagisticts it will take to close it and take care of the aftermath.

4. The writer doesnt state his opinion directly. I know the opinion because it seemed all the sorces and interveiws he used, showed only the negative effect on closing the shelter.

6. I learned this collumist does not truly care for the homeless. I feel he his acctualy quite apatheitc about them.

7. This article was written for any person living on this side of town in Atlanta.

8. The writer does not make me agree with him, due to my morals and compassion.

2. The writer obviously  uses logos in this collum. He shows all of the  costs and conisquenses in the disision being made. He tells of the outcome of both paths shown, and takes favor in one over the other. The writer also uses slight ethos apeal. In stating the vast numbers of the homeless population and telling their outcome if the shelter would be closed.  He states, the shelter "provides a lifeline for often desperate men."

Why Should We Help Those Who Are Homeless?

Why Should We Help Those Who Are Homeless? | Support of the Homeless | Scoop.it
When it comes to helping the homeless in America, the issue really boils down to one simple question. WHAT IF IT HAPPENED TO YOU? Developing a viable solution to homelessness becomes very, very simple when it's framed in the proper perspective.

 

Why should we help those who are homeless?

Those who are formerly homeless often become the most outspoken advocates for overcoming homelessness, and help you understand the root issues that lead to homelessness. 

 

Why should we help those who are homeless?

 Because it really could happen to you, and you don't want to have to face it alone. 

 

Learn more about Kingdom 911, and help us establish the communications hub that bridges the communication gap for those who are homeless, and those who seek to help them.

House Bills Support Grants | Federal Telemedicine News

The “Mobile Medical Homeless Health Improvement Act of 2013 (H.R. 29) would provide mobile medical healthcare services to homeless populations. Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez from New York introduced the bill in the House of Representatives on January 3, 2013 which was referred to the House Energy and Commerce Committee. 

 

Primary care, screenings, dental care, medications, behavioral healthcare, immunizations, lab tests, case management, benefits assistance and assessments and triage would be provided. Visiting a mobile medical healthcare service instead of the emergency department would result in a cost savings of more than $800 per visit. 

 

The legislation may award grants, contracts, or cooperative agreement to eligible entities to use the funding to improve the access of homeless individuals to mobile medical healthcare services. To be eligible for the funding a partnership must be established consisting of one or more hospitals plus one or more other local healthcare facilities including clinics, health centers, primary care facilities, mental health center, pharmacies or other medical assets. 

 

The “Veteran Emergency Medical Technician Support Act of 2013” (H.R.235) introduced by Representative Adam  Kinzinger of Illinois and Lois Capps from California would provide demonstration grants to use to streamline state requirements and procedures for veterans with military emergency medical training so that they can use their military training to become civilian emergency medical technicians.

Give Me A Shot Of Anything: Boston Street Doctor Makes House Calls to the Homeless

Give Me A Shot Of Anything: Boston Street Doctor Makes House Calls to the Homeless | Support of the Homeless | Scoop.it

Aldon Hynes shared this film about Boston street doctor,  Jim O'Connell, who makes house calls to the homeless in Boston, delivering life-saving care and offering his patients a chance to feel whole again.

 

I'm in awe of people like Dr. O'Connell who literally get out their in the trenches, and think the lessons that can be learned from what is working in his model are worth spreading in other communities, not just in the U.S., but globally.

 

Director, Jeff Schwartz, says he believes this feature-length documentary can "advance public awareness across America in countless communities, homes, health care facilities and classrooms", and that he hopes it will reignite the debate about health care and poverty. I agree that this is very important, and wonder if there isn't a better opportunity to fuel this than through old-school media such as DVDs, with what is likely a prohibitive licensing and shipping cost for many people who would otherwise be happy to host a screening?

 

If you really want an idea to take root and go viral, you make it cheap and easy to spread through the net. What would have to happen to make this possible?

 

I realize having it underwritten by commercial interests would perhaps frowned upon, but maybe something like a Kickstarter or Indie-Go-Go campaign to distribute the costs through crowd-funding might get traction.

 

The "Healthcare for the Homeless" program is a valuable example of community engagement, and I'd like to help share it more broadly.

Aldon Hynes ,who shared this with me, is with Community Health Centre, Inc., a U.S. based program created by citizens 40 years ago to reach out to some of the most disenfranchised populations to ensure they have access to world-class health care, regardless of income or their life situation. CHC, based in Connecticut, also has a health care for the homeless program where they go to shelters.

 

I'm not certain if we have anything like this here in Windsor, but I'd like to find out, and wonder if anyone is interested in seeing screen parties for "Give Me a Shot of Anything" happen here in Windsor?

What Would You Do If You Suddenly Found Yourself Homeless? | Support of the Homeless | Scoop.it

Do you know what types of services are available for the homeless in your neighborhood? Who is the first person you would call if you received the news that your home had just been taken away from you? Where would you spend your first night on the streets of your hometown?

 

There are a lot of people who are providing services for those who are homeless and impoverished, but do you know where to find them? 

 

Wouldn't you like to be able to pick up the phone, and talk to someone who could actually help you? Wouldn't you like to be able to logon to a website, and find the resources that could provide you with immediate assistance for your personal crisis?
