American Family Experiences with Poverty and Homelessness
The Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness’ Summer issue of its online newsletter Uncensored features an article that covers how homeless children and youth are enriched through arts programs offered by volunteers. And, the “Historical Perspective” and the “National Perspective” discuss the past and present of food insecurity in the United States.
The first analyzes the development of the school lunch program and its evolution over time, and the latter identifies the number of homeless families throughout the United States currently enrolled in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP). In the newsletter’s, “On the Record”, currently and formerly homeless family members share their thoughts on homeless policies and programs.
