The United States of Homelessness

The majority of homeless children continue to sleep in doubled-up conditions, though the fastest growing group of students were those staying in hotels and motels. Recent years have also seen a steady increase in the number of homeless children that have additional support needs, including children with disabilities or who have limited English proficiency.

Of course, the nature of child homelessness varies greatly not only state by state, but district to district. To show exactly where, and how, homelessness is growing in the country, ICPH developed The United States of  Homelessness, an interactive web tool that allows users to investigate these trends for themselves.
