TakePart blogger Christina Hoag shows that economic recovery hasn’t changed the situation for persistent homelessness in this country, which may get worse in 2014. Hoag writes, “cities expect homelessness to spike in 2014 because of looming federal funding cuts in food stamps and the end of long-term unemployment benefits after Christmas, which could push those barely making ends meet into homelessness.” TakePart cites a recent US Conference of Mayors survey that homelessness has increased by nearly 4% (see full report).
