"Homelessness hits for many reasons. Some are as simple as the loss of a job or good health, some as complex as the passage of poverty from one generation to the next. Whatver the causes, homelessness now threads through the whole of our nation. And the fabric is unraveling. The human cost is devastating. So is the ultimate cost to society."

— David Jordan, The Better Homes Foundation
