    Actually, families with children now make up 70% of OC
    homeless population. The face of homelessness has changed drastically since the subprime mortgage crisis along with the recession that began December 2007.

    One of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population is working families with children struggling to make ends meet. Of those, many are single mothers who were divorced, deserted, or victims of domestic violence, left without any means of financial support.

    There are over 32,582 homeless children in Orange County. 1 in 6 Orange County children are living in poverty. 1 in 12 children in Orange County
    are now homeless. (1)

    Orange County’s child homeless rate is higher than Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties. (2)

    24.3% of Orange County residents live in poverty according to the California Poverty Measure which accounts for high housing costs.(3) Source: 1. CDOE. 2 & 3, PPIC.org

    Fantastic!!! Yes ! Yes!

    The majority of homeless have untreated medical issues! This is a positive, effective solution.

    The medi-cal scam of picking up homeless,and transporting them by ambulances to bogus treatments hopefully is in the OC past.
