Poverty, it isn’t just for adults. Children live in poverty, and have fewer options to alleviate it. Prior to The Great Recession, 12% were on food stamps. Now, 20%. A 50% increase in child poverty.

On a typical frigid night in January, 138,000 children, according to the U.S. Department of Housing, were without a place to call home.

That’s about the same number of households that have each increased their wealth by $10 million per yearsince the recession.
