Statistics of the homeless
I was shocked when I found out some very basic statistics on the homeless in the United States.
A) On any given night, there are over 550,00 people homeless in the U.S.
B) Out of the 550,00, there are over 47,000 who are Veterans.
C) 83,000 are chronically homeless. “Chronically” indicates people on the streets for one year or longer.
D) 50% of the homeless are 50 years of age and older.
E) The top three states that have the most homeless are, Hawaii, New York, and California, with Boston falling in as the number one city.
OUT OF THE 550,000 HOMELESS PEOPLE, WHAT PERCENT DO YOU FEEL CAN ACTUALLY WORK?
