  2. Depends, Cole, on the definition that's used. Unfortunately, government has the consistency of being inconsistent, even in defining "homelessness."

    The Department of Education uses this: http://www.education.pa.gov/Documents/K-12/Homeless%20Education/ECYEH%20General%20Guide.pdf

    Two other departments, US Department of Health and Human Services and the US Department of Housing & Urban Development, each uses their own separate ones: https://www.nhchc.org/faq/official-definition-homelessness/

  3. Even if they aren't homeless, alot of them are living in places that aren't fit to live in

  5. i believe the problem is MUCH bigger than this in all reality. such a sin. where are the social services? there are THOUSANDS ILLEGALLY ON WELFARE AND FOOD STAMPS, FREE EVERYTHING.....when the majority aren't using it as it was meant to be: ASSISTANCE FOR EMERGENCIES.....NOT as a way of life. Way too many people take advantage of the broken system and are just too ignorant, too lazy to get a J O B...and on top of that, they think the world actually OWES them all this. it's more than BS.
