The National Alliance to End Homelessness has published "The State of Homelessness in America," a comprehensive examination that not only reveals national and state level homeless counts, but also delves into economic indicators and demographic drivers – taking an in-depth look at risk factors for homelessness. These findings project a disquieting picture of what the lagging pace of the economic recovery could bring about: increases in homelessness and heightened risk of homelessness for more and more Americans.
As the new Congress and the Administration consider steps to revitalize the American economy with jobs, extension of benefits, and access to health care, it would be prudent to take note of these increased risk factors and incorporate homeless interventions into their recovery strategy.
