It is unacceptable that 2.5 million children-one out of every 30 children-experience homelessness in the United States annually. The number has increased steadily over the last few decades and will not lessen until our nation pays attention to this issue, and makes it an immediate priority. We have reduced homelessness among chronically homeless individuals and veterans by targeting additional resources in the form of housing and critical supports. It is now time to include children and families in this effort.

From 2012 to 2013, the number of children experiencing homelessness annually in the U.S.: • Increased by 8% nationally. • Increased in 31 states and the District of Columbia. • Increased by 10% or more in 13 states and the District of Columbia. Major causes of homelessness for children in the U.S. include: (1) the nation's high poverty rate; (2) lack of affordable housing across the nation; (3) continuing impacts of the Great Recession; (4) racial disparities; (5) the challenges of single parenting; and (6) the ways in which traumatic experiences, especially domestic violence, precede and prolong homelessness for families

The impact of homelessness on the children, especially young children, is devastating and may lead to changes in brain architecture that can interfere with learning, emotional self-regulation, cognitive skills, and social relationships. The unrelenting stress experienced by the parents, most of whom are women parenting alone, may contribute to residential instability, unemployment, ineffective parenting, and poor health.
  • 15% of Americans live in poverty, including one in five children, the highest rate in the industrialized world.
  • Research indicates that 51% of the nation's homeless children are under the age of 6 years
  • Almost 60% of Americans will spend at least one year below the poverty line at some point between ages 25 and 75.
  • In America, 16 million children live in households where they have to skip meals or eat less to make ends meet.
  • There is no city or county anywhere in the United States where a worker making the minimum wage can afford a fair market rate one-bedroom apartment.
  • The cost of rent and utilities for a typical two-bedroom apartment increased 41% from 2000 to 2009.
  • 2 million additional American children will fall victim to the foreclosure crisis over the next two years.
  • More than 2.5 million children will be homeless this year.
  • For families, the three most common causes of homelessness are lack of affordable housing, poverty, and unemployment.
  • Homeless families are often hidden from our view—they are living in shelters, cars, campgrounds, or doubled up in overcrowded apartments
