Rural Homelessness often forgotten is pervasive

The National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH)  has information on various subpopulations of the homeless. One that is often overlooked is rural homeless.

According to NAEH, many people think of homelessness as strictly an urban phenomenon because homeless people are greater in number and are more visible in urban areas, but homelessness is pervasive in rural areas. The number of people who experience rural homelessness is unknown, but the last national count of homeless people found that 9 percent of homeless people live in rural areas.
