In the News: Shelter to School

In the News:  Shelter to School
July 7, 2016 Poverty Facts

According to The Capital Times - 

"There were 1,414 students in the Madison School District identified as homeless over the course of the 2014-15 school year, 5.2 percent of the student body. The number rises each year and is up 89 percent since 2008-09.

By some counts, children are the majority of the city's homeless, yet they aren't its typical face. They tend not to live on the streets in public view, although that does happen. Rather, a majority of their families are doubled up with relatives or friends, often in substandard conditions. Or they stay in shelters or motels."
