Every year 600,000 families with 1.35 million children experience homelessness in the United States, making up about 50% of the homeless population over the course of a year.
The threat of homelessness looms constantly over most poor families who struggle to meet their rent or mortgage payments, but there are risk factors or predictors of homelessness that suggest some families affected by the affordable housing crisis are more likely to become homeless than others.
While family homelessness is more prevalent than many think, it is possible to greatly decrease and end homelessness. By our efforts of voicing the seriousness of this issue, we hope to increase awareness for those who are unable to speak for themselves. We are all a part of the community...even the disenfranchised; and I, Brick Casey, along with many of my affiliated organizations sincerely hope that we'll be able to help the homeless in any way we can.
Support the Homeless today at any participating Hunger and Homelessness organization you can.
