Photograph Homeless In London by Joupin Ghamsari on 500px. Ken became homeless after a major fire in his mothers house left him homeless and paralysed. He is unable to stay in hostels as they do not have wheel chair access which forces him to sleep on the streets. He is eligible for a number of benefits but is unable to claim them as he has no identification as it got destroyed in the fire. He has been told that he has to buy himself the new id and it will not be provided for free.
Why do we call them "homeless" people? People don't refer to me as a "house" person and we don't call people "condo" or "apartment" people. We focus so much I'm the "homeless" part that we forget the "people" part. <3

I had a really hard day today, but I came home, opened the door to a place I could lay my head, be warm and dry. This person did not. Bless her Lord and open that door. Shame on me for overlooking and forgetting my blessings.
