The homeless in America

“. . . the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.” (Matt. 8:20)

“. . . 727,304 homeless people nationwide, meaning about one in 400 Americans were without a home, according to a USA Today survey of all 460 localities that reported results to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in June. . . . Katrina and Rita multiplied homelessness along the Gulf Coast as much as a hundredfold and almost doubled the national ranks. . . . Families with children are the fastest-growing segment of the homeless.”
