America's Youngest Outcasts: State Report Card on Child Homelessness
Posted Mar 10 2009 12:00am
"The National Center on Family Homelessness' new report, America’s Youngest Outcasts: State Report Card on Child Homelessness, offers comprehensive state-by-state data on the status of homeless children. The report documents the extent of child homelessness, describes the plight of these children, profiles and ranks the states, and proposes solutions. 'Children without homes are on the frontline of the nation’s economic crisis. These numbers will grow as home foreclosures continue to rise,' said Ellen L. Bassuk, M.D., president of the National Center on Family Homelessness. 'Our report underlines the need for every state—as well as the Obama Administration and Congress—to provide equal opportunities for all American children to grow and thrive in the safety and security of their own homes.'"
