The new Danish national survey of homelessness and homeless people sleeping rough
Some homeless people, thankfully only a small number, sleep on the street, exposed to the elements. It is this group, so-called rough sleepers, and specifically those who struggle with mental illness, whom projekt UDENFOR has worked to help for over twenty years. Considering the charity has been operating for all these years, it is a pill all the more difficult to swallow that not only are there still people sleeping rough, but that the number is growing.
Women who are exposed to violence risk becoming homeless
Homelessness is often the result of an interplay between several factors, of which violence is just one of many risk factors. Violence multiplies a woman's risk of falling into homelessness because violence typically starts a chain reaction in many other areas of life, which may lead to exclusion and homelessness.
