The Causes of Homelessness
Overview | Poverty | Lack of Public Assistance | Housing | Natural Disasters
Some people lose their homes to destruction in nature. The natural disaster causes the greatest loss to many people. It may even costs their lives. People who remain homeless in the aftermath of the disaster, end up in unsafe places. They don’t have insurance to reconstruct their homes because they cannot afford insurance at all or can't move to new areas. So to make the ends meet, they live wherever they can find shelter.
