US: Homelessness In The U.S. Was Down Slightly Over The Past Year
National Public Radio – November 17, 2016
Overall, almost 550,000 individuals were homeless on a single night earlier this year, according to a new report by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. That’s a 3 percent decline from 2015, and continues a downward trend in homelessness over the past few years. The numbers are based on a count conducted in January by communities across the country.
