Share America's 2.5 Million Homeless Children: A Panel Discussion

Event Details

You're invited to a discussion featuring the latest research-driven solutions on child and family homelessness, including the America's Youngest Outcasts Report. The American Institutes for Research (AIR)/National Center on Family Homelessness released America’s Youngest Outcasts in November 2014. The report documents the number of homeless children in every state, their well-being, their risk for child homelessness, and state level planning and policy efforts. Using findings from numerous sources that include well-established national data sets as well as research from AIR, the report ranks states from 1 (highest) to 50 (lowest) and found 2.5 million children in America--one in every 30 children--go to sleep without a home of their own each year.
