Focus on South Florida: Homeless in South Florida

Thousands and thousands of Americans are among the chronic homeless, and homelessness is a big problem across South Florida, both among adults and our youth..

We focus on the so-called “100,000 homes” campaign and its goal to end chronic homelessness by 2015.
