The State of Homelessness in America charts progress in ending homelessness in the United States. Using the most recently available national data, it is intended to serve as a reference for policymakers, journalists, advocates, and the public on trends in homelessness, homeless assistance, and at-risk populations at the national and state levels.

Helping to End Homelessness

PEORIA, Ill. —

Not long ago, Michael WIlliams was employed, living on his own and caring for his family. He relocated back to the Peoria area after learning his daughter was ill. However, a medical discovery of his own altered the course of his life.

His story is not uncommon, but often unconsidered as a journey to homelessness.
