One in 30 US children have been homeless

 
December 3rd 2014
 

According to a new report, nearly 2.5 million children – or one in 30 – were homeless at some point in 2013.

Entitled America's Youngest Outcasts, the study by the National Center on Family Homelessness shows the number of homeless children in America has hit a new record level. The worst state was Alabama, followed by Mississippi and then California.

Carmela DeCandia, co-author of the report and director of the NCFH, told the Telegraph that while the government had made progress in reducing homelessness among veterans and the chronically homeless, “The same level of attention and resources has not been targeted to help families and children. As a society, we’re going to pay a high price, in human and economic terms.”
