While researching familiy unification, for the purposes of personal, academic, and professional knowledge base, I found that a significant number of criminal justice professionals occupy these positions who are one dimensioned when it involves being the needed key holder to open the doors of resources for male, female, and family units to escape homelessness. I have experienced countless US veterans, mental health, and others afflicted with this plague, unable to receive the adequate support for rehabilitation. The dynamic of some programs make it almost impossible to recover, almost crippling you lower into the present engulfing circumstance. You MIGHT get shleter, but it’s only for a 5 to 1 or 2 week period. Depending on the individulas circumstance, they may or may not be able to restable there entire life in 1 week, to think 5 days. It’s like that Allen Iverson “Practice” speel he did back in  2002:       

“We ain’t talking bout a camp out.. This is Homelessness Main! “

And some facility’s criteria make it as to where if you’r not drunk, high, or Fe*d up or on some other issue, you can’t get into ANY program. Some require you to remain idle and under restrictions that severely limit or hinder any method of reallistic recouperation from present conditions.  Some programs prohibit you from seeking work for as long as 6 months. Huh?! How can you look for work and remain effective in restabilization: They’re not looking for a job for you. They aren’t keeping up with your mental or overall health, as a network plan. They aren’t paying your past due bills. they are not keeping up with your family obligations… You are.  And it is everyone’s responsibility to do so. So I, speaking for the sake of example, have to show up at the door of a shelter or housing program, seeking assitance, only expecting to get it at ANY level is to be high and isht.. With my child.. For shelter services? YOU GOT ME Fe*k UP!  THEEEEEEN, homelessness won’t be my only issues… I’m looking at a case with DSS! I ain’t sign up for that, just help to shelter my daughter. There does exist favoritism and even some realms of prejudice. But I blame that on the people and the sytem that know those people are like that and allow them for decades to remain in the roles to deal with the general public who appearantly fail to notice the ever changing dynamic in the norms of society, even if they aren’t always positive… They’re right there in their face –{<SMACK!.

I have wondered what observations do they make and REALLy report to their superiors, if any, and what do THEY in turn do with these findings. Beside front as if the system is working. Do they have board meetings: Ones that #INCLUDE those who are affected and those who work to render services to the public at large? With the economy, to include jobloss and training or collegiate education being crippled, the future is looking pretty hosed right now. And with services lacking or unaccomodating, the future is pretty gruesome and unpromising.
