Homelessness is a complex problem, fraught with many associated challenges and variables. Understanding homelessness requires a grasp of several social issues:Poverty, affordable housing, disabilities, and others. Homelessness can be surprisingly costly for taxpayers. The Homelessness Research Institute has developed interactive maps, calculators, and charts to improve understanding of concepts related to ending homelessness. A total number of 699 Housing Status Survey was conducted in an area of southern Georgia to understand the factors of homelessness. This study will address the relationship between homelessness and other factors.
