Who is Standing Behind that Number?

44%                                   30%
25%                                  20%
             40%       22% 
So what do these numbers mean?
Average monthly income for a homeless individual- $348

Percent of homeless that did paid work during the past month 44%

Percent of homeless that have been homeless for more than two (2) years 30%

Number of Americans who now live in hunger or on the edge of hunger    31,000,000
Percent of homeless persons who are employed 25%

Percent of people in a soup kitchen line who are children  20%
Percent of homeless population that are Veterans / Vets   40%
Percent of homeless women who claim domestic abuse as the reason for their homelessness 22% 

I may be  writing statistics....  but as I write each number I'm thinking of the people behind that number.
