This week, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will outline to Congress the ways it worked to prevent and end homelessness in the past year through
In its 2017 assessment which came out last December, HUD outlined four main goals for the next year—preventing and ending chronic homelessness; preventing and ending homelessness among veterans; preventing and ending homeless for families, youth, and children; and setting a path to ending all types of homeless.
Some stats that the 2017 report revealed included:
- The number of individuals experiencing chronic homelessness declined 18 percent (or just over 19,000 people) between 2010 and 2017.
- Between 2010 and 2017, the number of veterans experiencing homelessness dropped by 46 percent (more than 34,000 people).
- In January 2017, 185,000 people in families with children experienced homelessness (a 24 percent decline from 2010).
We’ll see how HUD progressed with their goals when the 2018 Annual Homeless Assessment Report is released Monday at 8 a.m. EST.
