Over 6 million people are currently homeless in this country and over 1.5 million are homeless children: That is 1 in every 50 children in the United States! Affordable housing has vanished for countless people in recent decades. In 2001, there were an estimated 4.7 million fewer affordable housing units than families. The vast majority of these homeless families live in extreme poverty with incomes around $5,000 annually - less than half of the national poverty level.
