Stark Facts About Homeless Children

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.
