This is a very rude post, and the correct term would be homeless, if at all you could of at-least got the proper term correct...

There are lots of homeless in Cincinnati. I've seen many on the streets. I once saw a family of homeless, it was sad.

Back when I lived in Montreal there were too many already.
The majority have mental illnesses so it makes them dangerous at time.
A couple years before I moved to the US there were more and more younger ones which is pretty sad.

Agreed, calling someone who is financially challenged a "hobo" is really disrespectful. I know the pains of being called a hobo all too well.

Well, the reason we dont give money to homeless is that we think that their just creatures on the streets and since nobody is giving us money we dont give money to them, its what society is sadly enough, and nobody changes that much, ;_;

Technically that's all hobo means, although it generally refers to people who travel around doing odd jobs.

I've never counted, but I always see at least one homeless person when I go into the city. Certain parts have more than others.
