So what. Most are the result of their own decision making.

A majority of those people are mentally ill. Many also refuse permanent housing. People have to accept help, not be belligerent, and change their behavior to escape the cycle. It takes work, which many know, and it's work not many put in.

Most homeless people have addictions to drugs and alcohol. In psychology it is shown that many people with mental illness use drugs and alcohol to cope with their affliction. It is debated whether the homelessness and drugs and alcohol led to the creation of a mental illness, or if their mental illness led to drugs and alcohol, which led to homelessness. Either way, increasing mental health services in schools and for the homeless should help significantly.
