Here in the great state of Texas there is a growing homeless population, while it might not be as bad as some other states, the numbers are definitely growing. I’ve been fortunate enough to never be homeless myself, sure I’ve struggled like most of us have, but never to the point of being homeless. I don’t think that anyone wants to struggle and end up in a homeless situation but unfortunately tough situations and circumstances combined with some poor decisions is often how people end up in that situation.

Recently there was an article created about the most homeless states in 2024 and I was interested in seeing what was being said by the creators of the article, I Sold My House. After talking to one of my brothers who lives outside of Texas he was telling me how bad the homeless population has gotten in his area and it just makes me want to make sure the same doesn’t happen in Texas. Hopefully more homeless people can find the resources they need to get back on their feet.
