Friday Round-up: this week in the news
Hot topic this week: Homeless children and families in DC and around the country.
- Washington Post’s two-part feature on the 600 kids living at the D.C. General shelter (http://wapo.st/VPEwBB) and how we can fix this (http://wapo.st/X2DUvT).
- In D.C. the number of families on the streets grew 18% last year. At the time of a budget surplus in the city, are we doing enough? http://wapo.st/Z7SxRv
- And all around the nation, single moms & families are the new “face” of homelessness: http://bit.ly/U5BgWg
Plus, good news – the Violence Against Women Act has passed the senate with key new protections for domestic violence victims! http://nyti.ms/XzNXoi
