Oregon Listed as One of the "Worst" for Homeless Children


The National Center on Family Homelessness issues its annual "report card" documenting the "best" and "worst" states regarding child homelessness. The report gives Oregon a composite score of 31, saying the state had more than 34,000 homeless children in 2010. That's up by about 10,000 since 2006. The report bases its rankings on factors including child homelessness, child well being, risk for child homelessness, and state planning and policy activities.  The report says Vermont is the best for homeless kids and Alabama the worst.
