National Homeless Persons' Memorial Day

Today the National Coalition for the Homeless remembers those homeless people who have died as a result of being homeless. Experiencing homelessness carries increased risk of death from exposure, crime, accident or untreated illness. According to the NCH, the fastest-growing population segment of the homeless is families with children.

It's a good day to take a moment to reflect on the high cost of experiencing homelessness, and perhaps to help those who do.
