Child homelessness is often thought to be rare in developed nations like the United States, but the truth is far grimmer. The Institute for Children, Poverty & Homelessness estimates that 1.3 million children in public schools were affected by homelessness last year, and between 2016 and 2017, over 3,500 youths experienced homelessness in Allegheny County alone. Unreliable living situations or having to live in shelters (or worse, on the streets) can make obtaining a quality education seem nearly impossible. But the Homeless Children's Educational Fund is working to change that.
