King County homeless population third-largest in US

- The number of unsheltered homeless individuals in 2017 ( 2,135 ) increased by 21.3 percent from 2016 and by 18.5 percent since 2010.

Los Angeles accounted for 60 percent of this increase.

New federal statistics show United States homelessness rose slightly this year - driven by a 4 percent jump in New York City and similar increases in Los Angeles and other West Coast cities.

The HUD report found that on one night in January, almost one of every four people experiencing homelessness in the United States was in New York City or Los Angeles.

On a single night, 553,742 people experience homelessness in the U.S. According to the latest national estimate by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) 2017 Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress, this number represents an increase of.7 percent since previous year.

"With rents rising faster than incomes, we need to bring everybody to the table to produce more affordable housing and ease the pressure that is forcing too many of our neighbors into our shelters and onto our streets", Carson suggested.

Monica Nilsson, a Twin Cities homeless advocate, said that a primary reason for the rise in homelessness is the loss of "naturally occurring affordable housing", a category that refers to housing that's not part of a subsidized program or social service. That represents a.7 percent increase nationally over past year.

In fast-growing Seattle, the unsheltered population grew by 44 percent to almost 5,500 over the past two years.

In contrast, the HUD report revealed a long-running decline in homelessness continuing in most other regions. Almost half of them were living unsheltered. "This is not a federal problem-it's everybody's problem".

-Fourth in the number of homeless individuals (as opposed to those in families), 7,571.

The veterans' numbers for California: Up 19.4 percent, to 8.5 percent of the total homeless population, with 66.7 percent unsheltered. Since 2010, however, veteran homelessness in IL declined by 23.7 percent and by almost 46% nationally.

Overall, HUD's newly released homelessness data also estimated that roughly 11 in every 10,000 people in New Hampshire were experiencing homelessness, in a shelter or elsewhere, in 2017.

The annual count found about 300 unaccompanied homeless IN youth and children. But it will serve as a baseline to track progress in reducing the number of youth without homes.
