It might not be who you think
More than 2,000 people are homeless in Tarrant County at any given time.
1 in 5 is a child.
Homelessness is a complex problem with many causes.
In Texas, these include one of the nation’s highest rates of people who are uninsured, one of the nation’s lowest investments in mental health treatment, one of the lowest minimum wages in the U.S., and one of the highest rates of incarceration. These and other factors leave many people at risk of homelessness.
