Families are the fastest growing segment of the homeless population.
Over 40% of the U.S. homeless population are families with children.
One out of every five children lives in poverty.
12% of families in the United States are only two paychecks away from becoming homeless. That is one in nine adults, and one in six children.
We can do something about it! When we choose to step up in faithful service, we can make a difference in the lives of families.
