I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Government Does Not Support Homeless People for Provision of Enough Help. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The government of Canada employs two dominant approaches to manage the homelessness crisis in the country. The two dominant approaches adopted by the government include emergency supports and the control method. To begin with, emergency supports, which local social service agents provide include voluntary organizations and health centers. These emergency support agencies also help homeless people with their basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, and health care services (Wellington, Greenbaum, & Cragg, 2007). However, the provision of food range from traditional food “soup kitchens” to muffins/doughnuts and coffee during daytime in drop-in centers. Unfortunately, the shelters provided are just mere temporary shelters, especially provided during cold seasons by Out of Cold Programs (United Nations Centre for Human Settlements, 2000). These are the only support services the Canadian Government provides to the homeless people instead of providing other essential services such as education, permanent shelters such as constructing children’s homes for the homeless youths, and offering employment opportunities since poverty is among the major causes of homelessness. Therefore, even if the government offers support services to the homeless, it does not give enough help to homeless youths.
The second strategy used by the government of Canada to help homeless people is the “control” method. Most politicians in Canada keep on advocating for policies, police actions, and laws to control the actions of homeless youths and adults who perceive to be delinquent and deviant. For instance, police officers use strict and harmful actions to ensure control of activities carried out by homeless youths in the city streets (Organization, 2004). The government implements police .practices, bylaws, and laws for the purpose of eliminating or restricting informal income-generating tasks, and ensuring that the homeless people do not sleep in public places instead of providing shelter and creating employment opportunities to these needy citizens (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development & Local Economic and Employment Development (Program), 2003).
