One in 30 US children are homeless as rates rise in 31 states, report finds
It’s National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week, and a new report by the National Center on Family Homelessness found that child homelessness has increased to nearly 2.5 million children in the United States. That means that one in 30 children are homeless in our country, and the number is rising in a majority of states. The number of homeless children in California alone has increased to over 500,000.
These numbers and more are featured in an article from The Guardian, and you can go directly to the report by clicking on the link or image below:
