"As coalitions across the nation, like the Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness, strive to bring communities together to address the issue of homelessness, it is important that we work from one definition. The only way we can truly solve the issue of homelessness is by knowing the true numbers. In school year 2013/14 the Anchorage School District identified 1,219 families that met the U S Department of Education's definition of homelessness. Of those families 851 did not meet the definition of homelessness at the time. These individuals deserve to be counted and this bill sends a message that all who experience homelessness are equally important."
...to thousands of homeless children and youth, including those who have aged out of the foster care system here the United States," said Portman. "Persistent poverty takes children who have nothing but their future ahead of them and drains away their hope and their faith. Washington has to ensure that it is playing the right role in helping these vulnerable children, and I believe this bipartisan bill is an example of just that."
"Too many homeless children and their families are overlooked by federal assistance programs," said Senator Feinstein. "Despite the fact that these children and families are extremely vulnerable, the narrow definition of homelessness used by HUD makes these individuals ineligible for help. Our bill fixes this problem, allowing children and families to access the help they need."
