One of the biggest misconceptions about homeless people is the public believes people on the streets are homeless by choice. The leading cause of homelessness is poverty and lack of affordable housing.
Ervin sleeps outside in his wheelchair. He has lived on the streets of Dallas for almost a week after a nursing home kicked him out for lack of insurance.
The good news is once Erwin gets his next disability check he’ll be able to pay for an assisted living and get out of homelessness.
The bad news is we live in a country that lacks health insurance, and the cost of both healthcare and housing continue to increase!
