  • Monday of this week was International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Read the statement by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights here:
  • Tackling homelessness will lead to lower health care costs.
  • 97 year old woman and sons (that we blogged about last week as well) are no longer homeless after article brought attention to their plight.
  • Revised formula puts 1 in 6 Americans in poverty:
  • Here’s an interesting NY Time editorial on the current “Compassion Deficit” and the criminalization of homelessness.
