Dramatic Increase in Family Homelessness in Cleveland

In most cities, the number of family experiencing homelessness increases during the summer.  The summer is now over, and so we can look back on family homelessness in 2012 in Cleveland.  As of September 12, there were 590 families who attempted to enter the shelters in Cleveland. Last year there were only 383 families who entered the shelters for the entire year according to statistics released by the Office of Homeless Services. That is a 154% of last year and we still have three more months.  This is a huge increase that should trouble everyone.
