THAT HOMELESS PERSON: IT COULD BE ANY ONE OF US PRESENTED BY LYDIA GANS People we see panhandling are generally homeless men who are mentally ill or have substance abuse problems and are most likely Vietnam war veterans. But there’s an ever-increasing but less visible number of women who are homeless now: women of all ages, many with children.
