    1 in 50 American Children Homeless

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/03/10/hom...ren/index.html

    This is outrageous in a developed country like the US.

    The majority of those kids will never graduate high school. So sad.

    There was an article in the news last week about a big surge of homeless kids in California due to the economy. One lady was staying at a family's apartment during the day and then sleeping with her kids in another relative's garage. People are reluctant to come forward for help because of fear their kids will be taken away. It may get worse. One in eight homeowners is said to be in foreclosure or about to be evicted.
