ACEs and the causes of Homelessness

If you really want to be depressed, read on…..

These are the nine major causes of homelessness. The next picture are the 10 areas of adverse childhood experiences with those nine causes of homelessness overlaid into those boxes so you can see how they connect.

I’m not telling you to feel sorry for anybody who’s homeless. I’m asking you to try to understand why we have to be mindful of how we parent and interact with kids because it can lead to homelessness and other unintended side effects for the rest of their lives.

If you ever have a chance to have a conversation with somebody who is really struggling in life, ask them about their childhood and see if this makes any difference and how you feel about the current Homeless issue in LA.
