Actually the reason most are homeless is very similar, they prioritized something else in life more than their housing. For some this is drugs, others a car, cell phones, tablets, or other material possessions. Sometimes it is their passionate desire to remain out of the confinement of a mental institution, despite their acute need for treatment in such. Some rebound and find a way back out, and in so doing change the way they look at life and how they live their life. A majority that I have worked with however do not want to change, they just want more handouts to keep the disruption to their lives to a minimum while they continue to place emphasis on the things that they place more value on than their housing and well being.
