  • 40% of people who are homeless are disabled.

  • 65% experienced abuse as children or had been neglected or emotionally abused.
  • 40% of homeless youth identify are LGBTQ and need our protection.
  • the number of people who are particularly vulnerable to abuse on the streets, transgendered, increased by 18%.
