Home California with the least protected homeless

California with the least protected homeless

Thomas C. Frohlich

According to the latest US government estimates, there were 552,830 homeless people in the United States in January 2018, essentially unchanged from the same period last year.

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development provides Congress with annual estimates of homelessness across the country. Estimates show a great variability of homelessness across the country.

Homelessness is on the rise in many major US metropolitan areas, many of which struggle to manage these increases.

24/7 Wall St. examined the share of the unprotected homeless population in each state in relation to the total homeless population. Nationally, about two-thirds of homeless people were staying in sheltered places, such as emergency shelters and various government housing programs. Meanwhile, one-third of the homeless lived on the streets, in abandoned buildings and other unprotected places.
