Support Forsaken Generation ~ committed to squashing youth homelessness! #FreedomTweet See more
There are over 1 million homeless students in schools nationwide. Less than 25% of them will actually graduate High School. Children make up 27% — the fastest growing segment — of the U.S. homeless population, and there’s no end in sight; the recession has forced many families out of their homes, making these youth just another group on the long list of victims, moving from couch to couch, shelter to shelter. The statistics on youth homelessness are staggering. In 2 years the number of homeless youth has increased by 100%. Sadly these children have been overlooked for far too long. We must reach reach out with compassion and help these children who desperately need our help.
