My List of Things I Need As a Homeless Person: One of the top questions asked to and about homeless people goes a lot like this: What Do Homeless People Want? What Do They Need? What Can They Use? How Can I Help Them? What Should I Give? Someone wanting to help some homeless people in their home town once set me an email asking: "What are the top things homeless people need? Please write a list, I want to help some local homeless and I don't know what they need. What can I do to help them?" Did you try just asking them? Everyone needs different things at different times. Everyone needs basic things to survive: food, water, sleep. But beyond that each person has different needs. A vegetarian homeless person would have very specific food needs. A diabetic homeless person probably needs help getting medical supplies. Teens have different needs than elderly. Disabled veterans have different needs than a mother with small children. A homeless person on their own has different needs than an almost identical person living in a tent city. A homeless person with a job has different needs than the one unemployed. The homeless in Florida are going to have different needs than the homeless in Alaska, simply because of climate differences. Where they are, who they are, and why they are, is going to affect the answers and needs they have. So please keep that in mind. You won't know what a specific person needs unless you ask them. Sure I can give you a list, and I will, but it is a list reflecting on my own wants and needs, based on my own personal age, gender, health, experiences, etc. My answers will help to give you a guideline, but your local homeless person is just as unique as I am and their specific needs are not going to be the same as mine.
