America’s Youngest Outcasts 2010


The National Center on Family Homelessness released a new report, America’s Youngest Outcasts 2010, a state report card on child homelessness which ranks the 50 states from best (1) to worst (50) and offers specific policy solutions. The report finds that more than 1.6 million children, or one in 45, are homeless annually in America. This represents an increase of 38% during the years impacted by the economic recession (2007 to 2010). This report, which updates a previous study by The National Center, looks at trends in child homelessness from 2006 to 2010 using data and research on the extent of child homelessness, child well-being, risk for homelessness, and state policy and planning efforts.
