Homelessness in America did not begin in the late 1970s or early 1980s when state mental hospitals closed, when tens of thousands of veterans returned from Vietnam physically and mentally ravaged, or when federal cuts in housing resulted in the loss of massive numbers of affordable housing units. The history of homelessness in the United States is much older and deeply rooted, going back to the arrival of the first Europeans and their subjugation and displacement of indigenous peoples. Learn about the history and causes of homelessness, current trends in homeless services, and future directions in addressing homelessness.
