    From VOA Learning English, this is the Health & Lifestyle report.
    In February 2020, the United Nations Commission for Social Development created its first resolution on homelessness, which said that homelessness has become a global problem and a “serious violation of human dignity,” which It affects people of all ages in all walks of life.
    UN Habitat has observed a worrying increase in homelessness around the world in the last 10 years. Youth are the age group most at risk of homelessness.
    In some parts of the United States, there are many people who live in a vehicle instead of a house or apartment and are called “vehicle homeless.” As a result, RVs, RVs, and other vehicles have turned up in local campgrounds, store parking lots, and neighborhood streets. It’s especially problematic in areas with very high housing costs like Seattle, Washington.
    The Associated Press reported August 12 that the Washington Supreme Court has issued a decision that helps protect people who live in their vehicles from being towed. The judges held that it was “unconstitutionally” extreme for the city of Seattle to impound a homeless man’s truck and require him to pay the costs of almost $550 to get it back.
    The court also ruled that the vehicles people live in are homes and cannot be taken from them or sold to pay their debts.
    Associated Press reporters recently took a closer look at the problem in two cities in the western part of the US: Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Bozeman, Montana.
    In Bozeman, Heather Grenier, executive director of the Human Resource Development Council (or HRDC), recently told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that during the pandemic, many people have lost their homes, so now, there is an increase in “homelessness.” in vehicles”.
    In Jackson Hole, some people live in vehicles in and around some of the most beautiful national parks in the United States. One reason is that there is little land to build new homes on and very little affordable housing.
