Over 550,000 people in America may be homeless on a given night, with one-fifth of them being children. Many factors may contribute to homelessness, including a traumatic life event, natural disaster, loss of a job, family conflict, physical disability, mental illness, substance abuse, or domestic violence. Charities that combat homelessness provide basic housing needs, as well counseling to rebuild a life and home. Help provide basic housing essentials by donating to a CFC-supported housing and shelter organization.
