A few stark facts have further raised my awareness about homeless children.
- The average age of a homeless person in the United States is seven years old.
- Approximately 1.35 million children in the United States are homeless every year.
- In 2010-2011 school year, most states had 11% increase in the number of homeless students.
- 1 in 5 children don’t have access to nutritional food on a daily basis.
