The National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH) has documented 1,650 acts of violence against homeless individuals by housed perpetrators over the past 17 years (1999-2015). These crimes are believed to have been motivated by the perpetrators‘ biases against people experiencing homelessness or by their ability to target homeless people with relative ease. Because the homeless community is treated so poorly in our society, many attacks go unreported and unrepresented. Therefore, we cannot know the full scope of these abuses. Hate crimes against the homeless community are a vital issue in need of public attention.
