We have over a QUARTER MILLION Homeless CHILDREN?? How is that even possible? If they are IN public school, that means they are already registered in many govt systems, so they should be the FIRST to get personalized help. The fact that the govt allocates resources to Counting them but not HELPING them is unspeakably horrific, incomprehensible, and unforgivable.
