Cruxes of homelessness in Southern Philippines
Mila A Samin
Homelessness is a complex social problem inimicable to the concern individuals. This paper aims at the determination of factors causing massive homeless individuals in the four select regions in Southern Philippines. The sample comprised of randomly chosen 100 homeless respondents in each select city in considered regions. An observation guide was outlined to describe the homeless and to determine possible driving factors of their displacement while a questionnaire-interview consisting the perceived causes of homelessness was employed to gather the necessary data. The study shows that the causes associated to homelessness are individual and structural factors. Poverty, abstinence of education, leaders’ poor management, unemployment, absence of public assistance, relationship with friends, domestic violence, force resettlement, and existence of drugs and crimes were among the persistent cruxes of homeless in the region. The identification of causal factors of homelessness is crucially substantial in advocating intervention solutions to end the problem so that possible pervasive risks and effects could be altered and prevented.
