EFFECTS OF HOMELESSNESS
Homelessness does not choose whether a person is a youth, he, or she has a family and if they are single adults. Some of the effects that result from homelessness are as listed.

Common health problems among the homeless are leg ulcers, respiratory infections, tuberculosis, pneumonia, and HIV/AIDS among others. Homeless children lack the stability in their schooling leading to the adverse effects on their academic performance. Kids who are vagrant also experience hunger, deprived mental and physical well-being and missed educational opportunities. Homelessness results from many street children and high rate of insecurity in the cities. Page, T. , & Nooe, R. M.
