People are targeted who go to banks, and shopping malls. And in Florida, l have read a lot of stories of woman who go to bars and disappear. People can be targeted at anytime of the day. But late night can be a scary time for us if you are a older person. I try to dress a bit younger, and workout so l don't look like a target. Also people leaving grocery stores with their hands full, can become a target. So you just need to have common sense and awareness. But this isn't homelessness, this is just the world we live in . When people end up homeless due to challenging mental issues, there are many medical health people who try to treat them, but it's nevertheless challenging. The population of those on the street are from issues like divorce, bankruptcy, loss of job, eviction, medical issues or a combination of these issues including a criminal or a bad credit record which will affect getting jobs or rentals. So it's best to help the homeless. Many more live in their cars because it's safer then living on the street. In LA, over 50% of the homeless were over 50 years old. In Portland, you will be robbed in 24 hours when you start living in the street. Woman fear being raped, and do drugs as to stay awake at nite and sleep during the day.
