Giving Money to the Homeless

A study in Canada, conducted by Foundations for Social Change and University of British Columbia, revealed that homeless people given money are more likely to move into stable housing faster and save enough money to maintain financial security.  For the experiment, 50 subjects who became homeless in the prior 2 years were each given $7,500 (in Canadian dollars).  There was also a control group of 65 homeless individuals who did not receive any funding.  Over the next year, both groups had access to workshops and coaching focused on developing life skills and plans.  Many people justify their lack of generosity toward homeless people with the common misconception that, “homeless people waste their money on drugs.”  However, the survey reported that the individuals decreased spending on drugs, tobacco and alcohol by an average of 39 percent, and increased spending on food, clothes and rent.  Next time you see a homeless person on the street, remember that harmful stereotypes are not always accurate, and by donating, you could be helping that person obtain a better future.
