Aumento modesto dos sem abrigo nos EUA
September 24, 2019 -
O número de pessoas sem abrigo nos EUA aumentou ligeiramente
pelo segundo ano consecutivo – para quase 553.000 em 2018 – depois
de baixar continuamente durante sete anos.
Some two-thirds of America’s homeless (65%) were staying in sheltered locations -- emergency shelters or transitional housing programmes. The remainder were on the street, in abandoned buildings, or other places not suitable for human habitation.
Homelessness increased (though modestly) for the second year in a row. The number of homeless people on a single night increased by 0.3 per cent between 2017 and 2018.
Almost half of all people experiencing homelessness are in three states: California, with 129,972 people, New York with 91,897, and Florida with 31,030 homeless.
