Issue where shared responsibility of common good is not realised
    The basic global right of every human being is to have a place to reside and be safe from the daily perils that can come to them in the absence of the shelter. However, the issue of homelessness is not being abolished from the world even in the present times, when there is so much development in every sphere all around. In Australia, 17% children and 12% adults are homeless (Homelessness Australia, 2016).
The key reason, which is being attributed for this large number is poverty because, poverty has restricted the affordability of the people to secure a permanent shelter for themselves. As supported by Sharam and Hulse (2014), the costs of living is increasing at an alarming rate, which is why the ones with less or no economic strength or employability are being subjected to such vulnerable situations.
    However, the profundity of this issue lies deeper because there has been a lack of support from the ends of the community as well as from the government in supporting the present living conditions of these homeless people and improving their plight. Although the Australian government has passes many acts in their support, participation of the community members in implementing them also realises the shared responsibility of common good, which has been insufficient (Economics Help, 2016).
Hence, it can be viewed that harm to the human dignity of such poor and homeless people are still prevalent, which can be eliminated only with the help of community engagement and advocacy of a better life. As suggested by McNamara (2015), if immediate steps are not taken in the favour of the homeless and poor people, they might become more susceptible to unhygienic conditions, poor health standards, victims of harsh weather, crime, animal attacks, drugs or substance abuses and consequently to loss of lives.
Ways to mitigate this issue globally and locally in professional community
    The issues of homelessness and poverty have been encountered to be a local as well as global problem, which cannot be eliminated with the efforts of an individual entity or at the individualistic level. As argued by Canfield, Nolan, Harley, Hardy and Elliott (2016), it calls for the involvement of the community and the government in such a way that the sense of sharing responsibility for the common good is realised. Hence, the following ways have been identified for the same.
Reporting: The most common and grave reason for the lack of support towards the poor as well as homeless people is the fact that their problems are not reported adequately. They suffer due to lack of resources, support, crime, crisis, ill health and drug abuse. However, as contradicted by Essert (2016), their problems need to be reported immediately to the concerned authorities for taking the required actions. Thus, two principles of common good can be addressed with the help of this— advocacy and human dignity. If their problems are paid attention to, they would be able to fathom that their dignity holds importance to the society. Besides, if actions are taken against the issues mentioned, advocacy of taking actions against these negative circumstances can be fostered (The Sydney Morning Herald, 2016).
Construction of basic structured homes for them: The most convincing and convenient solution to eradicating homelessness, despite the issue of poverty is to provide homes to these people. As supported by Goelman Rice, McCall and Ogden (2017), with the support of the community members, simple-structured houses could be constructed for them so that they can at least find a shelter to protect themselves from the harsh weather, crimes, animal attacks and any other common problems faced by them, if they reside on the pavements, parks, alleys or streets.
Creating awareness amongst the community members for the significance of common good: According to Aykanian and Lee (2016), maintenance of common good and fostering it in the society are very important in order to maintain harmony around all the individuals. Common good is established, when one thinks about the well-being of everyone i
espective of the country or the community. Hence, it is not bounded by borders or limitations and encompass thinking well of everyone (Hennigan, 2017). However, this is often failed to be realised by the community, thus, failing to undertake the shared responsibility of the common good. Hence, awareness regarding this could be presented in the society through motivational speeches,...
