A new report by the National Center on Family Homelessness has revealed, 1,600,000 American kids are homeless and living on the streets. This marks a 33% increase over the past 3-years, during which the financial crisis hit America and wreaked havoc on many people's finances. The foreclosure crisis has certainly contributed to these figures as well.
These numbers are infuriating, as the government has wasted billions of dollars on wasteful projects that added nothing to the economy, while children in America go hungry and homeless. This needs to be corrected. In a country with as many resources as America, no child should be homeless or hungry.
