So what do these numbers mean?
Average monthly income for a homeless individual- $348
Percent of homeless that did paid work during the past month 44%
Percent of homeless that have been homeless for more than two (2) years 30%
Number of Americans who now live in hunger or on the edge of hunger 31,000,000
Percent of homeless persons who are employed 25%
Percent of people in a soup kitchen line who are children 20%
Percent of homeless population that are Veterans / Vets 40%
Percent of homeless women who claim domestic abuse as the reason for their homelessness 22%
I may be writing statistics…. but as I write each number I’m thinking of the people behind that number.
