Websites can be included in your research, and eventually included in your list of references, although you are expected to rely on authoritative sources.

Homelessness . We will learn about many social problems during this course. Some problems are very complex and are typically the result of both individual and social issues. As we study these social problems, one question should always come to mind: What can be done about these problems?
