Description:
That is why good referral services are of the utmost importance. In order that good referral services be provided by voluntary agencies, there must be close liaison between the voluntary agencies and the statutory sector. As this report shows, people can become homeless at any age. And no matter what age people are, the state of being homeless is always a major and immediate crisis: where to find abed for the night, how to get money to pay for a hostel, where to find a place to wash, where to get a change of clothes, how to find something to eat, how to get sorted out tomorrow, if today can be got through. Negotiating these hurdles would be a daunting task for the strongest of individuals. For the person who is also suffering from bad health and may have other problems, it is an almost impossible ordeal. Yet what the homeless person needs does not amount to an unreasonable list of requests but to the basic conditions of life as recognized by the State: a place to live, an adequate income to live on.
