How Come People Mistreat The Homeless

All right, allow me to break it down for you all on just what my friend goes through as a:
Homeless
Elderly woman
Who has lost everything: House, money the whole hot dog.
My homeless friend:
Gets verbally abused as well as she gets discriminated against.
Her last stay at a womans shelter she was kicked out for no other reason than
the staff hated her.
Now doesn’t that smell of discrimination & hate? It does to me.
She is in bad shape too.
My friend has gone from being wealthy to living in deplorable conditions.
Guess what everyone? No one gives a damn to help her.
I have called many places.
Here in this crummy state there isn’t ENOUGH AFFORDABLE housing.
There are waitlists EVERYWHERE!
And alot of the agencies just don’t care.
This infuriates me, people here are lazy!
I don’t know what to do for my friend.
It just doesn’t look good.
I wish I could go to some kind of support group for something like this.
You know, a support group for people who have homeless friends.
This is a VERY serious issue for me everyone. I’m extremely sensitive.
I’ve even sent multiple prayer requests online to help her.
I’m just plain upset.
Probably no one even cares out there.
But I sure do.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down.
