A new report from a federal housing agency singled out New Hampshire as one of the states that saw the largest increase in homelessness among families with children. "While we have made significant strides in reducing the number of individuals experiencing homelessness, we must remain committed to implementing strategies that make it a rare, brief and non-recurring event". Veteran homelessness decreased 9 percent ( or 85 persons ) since January 2016.
Team de Blasio's approach to the city's "right to shelter" law is helping the record numbers: Families who once would have let relatives live "doubled up" with them now encourage them to enter the shelter system for a temporary place to stay until the city gives them an emergency grant, puts them in public housing or gets them a Section 8 subsidy.
While overall homelessness decreased, HUD's 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress found that veterans experiencing homelessness declined 10 percent in state since 2016 and declined 46.6 percent since 2010.
A government report has found that the number of homeless people across the United States increased for the first time since 2010.
It also showed that the number of chronically homeless individuals, those who have been without home for at least a year, rose for the first time since 2008, which was over 12 percent higher than that of last year.
-Tenth in the number of people in homeless families, 1,589.
Overall, 68.2 percent of the homeless in California are unsheltered, the highest rate of any state.
"With rents rising faster than incomes, we need to bring everybody to the table to produce more affordable housing and ease the pressure that is forcing too many of our neighbors into our shelters and onto our streets", Carson suggested. For every 10,000 people in California, 34 are homeless.
The annual count found about 300 unaccompanied homeless IN youth and children. This year, HUD and local communities launched a more intense effort to more accurately account for this important, hard to count population. HUD says Indiana's homeless veteran population has fallen 20 percent since 2010. But it will serve as a baseline to track progress in reducing the number of youth without homes.
