From The Huffington Post:
This week the homeless population of the United States received a profile boost. On Tuesday, during President Obama‘s primetime press conference, a reporter from Ebony magazine asked about the rise of tent cities across the country and a new study showing that every fiftieth American child is homeless.
“Part of the change in attitudes that I want to see here in Washington and all across the country,” the president said in response, “is a belief that it is not acceptable for children and families to be without a roof over their heads in a country as wealthy as ours.”
A change in attitudes may be underway.
