This article is about the problem that Canada has with the chronic homeless. It states that Canada has fairly good services for the majority of homeless people who end up only being homeless for a month or two. It states that while most homeless receive the care that they deserve in Canada and are able to overcome their problems and get back on their feet, there is still a significant portion of the homeless population which are chronic homeless.
It states that the system in place now does not provide the chronic homeless with the services they need after leaving incarceration. It states that these chronic homeless end up back on the street as there are not enough services to in place at the moment to properly help people who are chronic homeless to recover from their mental health and addiction issues.
It is a fairly good article, which not only does a fine job of describing the causes and factors involved in chronic homelessness, but also outlines the problems with the current Canadian system and provides clear-cut solutions to these problems.
