Homeless Children in Shelters on the Rise in NYC But Many are Turned Away
Posted by David Icke
'Almost 20,000 children are spending the night in homeless shelters in New York City, according to new data, an increase of 24% since July 2011.
The Coalition for the Homeless, which published the figures, said the number of children in shelters would be even higher were it not for the fact that 65% of homeless families seeking admission to shelters are being turned away.
The homeless charity places some of the blame on the closure of the Advantage housing program in the summer of 2011. Since then there has been no rent-subsidy program in place for accommodating homeless families.'
