The Homeless Smell Awful!
In 2020, the homeless population in Washington reached 21,577. Due to Covid, access to public restrooms has been a struggle for the homeless, leaving many individuals unable to meet their basic hygiene needs.
Foundation for Homeless & Poverty Management is developing day centers to meet the needs of people surviving homelessness by providing a place where they can get a shower, clean clothing and fulfill their basic hygiene needs.
Get a Job!
According to a study, between 5 and 10 percent of the homeless are employed full-time and between 10 and 20 percent are employed part-time or seasonally. Some studies place the rate of employment around 45%. The working homeless have low wage jobs but still either sleep in their vehicles (if they have one) or are couch surfing. Your favorite fast-food places do not provide enough wages for them to “afford a place to call home.”
