As the recession took hold last year, homelessness shifted toward rural and suburban areas and gripped a growing number of families, the U.S. government reports today.
The number of homeless people receiving shelter, 1.6 million, was largely unchanged from 2007, but the number of those in families rose 9% from about 473,000 to 517,000, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development report. The figures are for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30.
The number of homeless people in rural and suburban shelters jumped sharply: 32% of all people in shelters compared with 23% in 2007.
He says the city will soon begin receiving some of its $74 million in federal funding to prevent homelessness by helping people pay rent, utilities and security deposits.
