  • Homelessness Declines in Massachusetts by 10.4 Percent

Despite the overall increase, homelessness across the country is varied. While overall homelessness increased by 0.7% nationally since 2016, since 2010 there was a decline of 13.1%. However, Ashley said she has found that once people hear you are homeless, they tend to look down on you.

The numbers come from an annual report to Congress, released Wednesday, that is based on HUD-mandated "point in time" counts done every January in 3,000 cities and counties across America.

- The number of unsheltered homeless individuals in 2017 ( 2,135 ) increased by 21.3 percent from 2016 and by 18.5 percent since 2010.

The HUD report said that the 2017 homeless population included 3,899 individuals, 3,769 people in families with children, 889 unaccompanied homeless youth, 281 veterans, and 813 chronically homeless individuals.

California had 134,278 homeless people, and while the Golden State has the nation's largest population, the rate of 34 homeless residents per 10,000 people was twice the national average, according to the report.

"In many high-cost areas of our country, especially along the West Coast, the severe shortage of affordable housing is manifesting itself on our streets", HUD Secretary Ben Carson said in a statement. "With rents rising faster than incomes, we need to bring everybody to the table to produce more affordable housing and ease the pressure that is forcing too many of our neighbors into our shelters and onto our streets".

One of the major consequences of the homeless explosion in the West Coast is a deadly hepatitis A outbreak that prompted California officials to declare a state of emergency two months ago.

California has nearly half of the nation's unsheltered homeless.

On a single night, 553,742 people experience homelessness in the U.S. According to the latest national estimate by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress, this number represents an increase of.7 percent since past year.

A Chronicle examination of homeless counts throughout California in the summer found that surging housing prices and rents and stagnant wages were driving indigence up not just in most urban areas, but in rural communities as well. That was up by more than 100, or more than 25 percent, from the year before. Forty-three percent are unsheltered. Veteran homelessness decreased 9 percent ( or 85 persons ) since January 2016.
