|On any given night, more than 550,000 Americans are without a home. The Alliance's State of Homelessness in America report sheds light on the population experiencing homelessness, the homeless system's response, and how both are changing over time. |
What the interactive report finds: While the vast majority of people experiencing homelessness live in some form of shelter or transitional housing, 34 percent live "unsheltered" in a place not meant for human habitation. Individuals comprise 67 percent of the homeless population and people in families make up the remaining 33 percent.
