Homelessness across the United States fell slightly last year but increased in California and other West Coast states, largely due to a shortage of affordable housing, federal officials said Thursday.
Around the nation, homelessness was down 3 percent amid growing scrutiny of the problem. In California, however, homelessness climbed 3 percent, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s annual snapshot assessment of homelessness in America.
“We have a lot left to do,” said HUD Secretary Julian Castro, adding that the incoming Trump administration had a responsibility to continue the effort. “I sure hope the next administration will take the baton and make more progress, and not drop the baton.”
Nationwide, Castro said, there were 549,928 homeless people counted in the “point-of-time” homeless census conducted in January.

 

LET”S HOPE OUR NEW PRESIDENT & OUR NEW HUD Secretary can do something about it.
