We have added a graph on statewide usage of the Food Stamp program by people who are leaving the shelters here. This is taken from the reports that shelters keep about homeless people that is submitted to HUD every year. Almost all of the residents coming out of the shelter qualify for food stamps, but many do not take advantage of this local resource.
We also posted the State of Homeless report for 2009. Check out all the statistics and research documents on our website here.
