Franklin County Homeless Population

These are based on the US Census American Community Survey poverty numbers.  These are estimates based on the number of people living in poverty (the higher the number, the higher percentage falling into homelessness).  These are based on the broader Dept of Education definition of homelessness and not the silly HUD definition of homelessness used by the shelters.  These have nothing to do with the January "Complete Count" that the County and HUD release.  Those numbers are mandated by Congress, but have no basis in fact.    These numbers can be found for each year on our Research Section of our website under "Overall Numbers" for each year.  This gives further explanation of the definition and methodology.

Columbus/Franklin County Seniors and Children in Poverty

These are based on US Census data from the American Community Survey for Lucas County home to the City of Toledo.   This demonstrates that the social security system, Medicare, and the local senior safety net works.  Every community has a government funds going to help seniors with transportation, day centers, and activities.  Government has been effective keeping seniors in housing and safe.  We have not done the same for families in the United States and we are seeing overflowing shelters and long waiting lists for housing for families.
