Surrounded by Affluence Yet Homeless
This presentation is intended to show and highlight the rising issue of homelessness in Lake County; an affluent county. Affluence doesn’t shield a community from some of its members being in a housing crisis. As a matter of fact, where there is affluence comes high cost of living; where there is high cost of living comes individuals who can no longer keep up with the rising costs. As a result, homelessness is seen.
Intended Audience: The intended audience is varied as the presentation can be modified depending on audience.
