Friends Of the Homeless SPRINGFIELD Ma (a homeless shelter that I was a client at.) Homeless individuals face varies barriers differing from one client to the next. The issue of homelessness does not create the individual but it does impact their life. Society still sees homeless individuals as those who you find sleeping on street corners on drugs or drunk and begging for money not all homeless individuals are this way. We want the same things you do stability structure a place we belong and eventually a place we can call our own. Homelessness affects the mental health of each individual differently and many do not look any different than a person not facing these challenges.
