We see homeless people every day and somehow we keep ignoring them since we are too busy competing in the rat race. People never stop and think about how these people ended up without an address and how they manage to survive for so long. We fail to realize they are the real survivors of our modern times and they manage to subsist even when all odds are against them.
More surprisingly, some of the people you interact with on a daily basis are homeless and there’s nothing to give it away. They look just like you and me and they are functioning members of society without having a place of their own.
If you have the chance to volunteer for a homeless aid organization and if you spend some time with those without an address, you will learn things you never imagined. Their survival lessons and the knowledge they acquired while living in the concrete jungle can be exploited by anyone. It is astonishing how they manage to improvise a shelter, how they cook their food and how they procure everything needed to have a somehow normal life.
Can you imagine what your life would look like if would trade places with them? How will your survive being homeless, without all the luxuries you are accustomed to? This is no farfetched scenario and many people are just one paycheck away from losing it all.
Homelessness is a tragic problem everywhere and it becomes a true survival struggle for most of the people without an address. The survival lessons you learn from the people living on the streets are more real than any survival TV show and provide good information for emergency preparedness.

Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
