Based on international reports, it is estimated that no less than 150 million people, or about 2 percent of the world’s population, are homeless. Seventy percent of people experiencing homelessness are individuals who are living on their own or in the company of other adults. The remaining 30 percent are people in families with children.
Among families who are homeless with children, the majority sited loss of job as the cause, followed by the lack of affordable housing, poverty, low paying jobs, and domestic violence. More than one-third of homeless have a mental or physical disability.
In the United States alone, 17 out of every 10,000 people were experiencing some form of homelessness in a single night in 2019. Far to many people in America sleep outside and in other locations not meant for human habitation. Among individuals experiencing homelessness, the numbers are more dire, 1 in 2 are unsheltered.

In addition, COVID-19 is creating a health and economic crisis throughout the world. It is too soon to determine its ultimate impacts. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), some individuals are at higher risk of becoming seriously ill from COVID-19. They include older adults age 65 and over.
However, people experiencing homelessness are at greater risk of COVID-19 and are vulnerable to becoming seriously ill during the pandemic crisis. Those who live on the streets have limited opportunities to wash their hands for 30 seconds numerous times a day and cannot be involved in the panic-buying of hand-sanitizing gels, or other essential supplies.
We have a duty of care to all people. And street-sleepers, who are unlikely to have brought the infection back from a foreign business trip or holiday, will be among those affected by the illness and will require medical care.
