Released Tuesday, the U.S. Conference of Mayors 2010 Status Report on Hunger Homelessness in American Cities — in their annual assessment of 26 American cities — has tallied a 9 percent overall increase in the number of homeless families in the U.S in the past year. Fifty-eight percent of the cities analyzed showed an increase in family homelessness.

Based on this survey, on an average night, 1,105 family members are on the streets, 10,926 find refuge in an emergency shelter, and 15,255 stay in transitional homes.

Trapped in this deteriorating economy, low-income families find themselves stuck in financial sinking sand and, though they have work, must move out of their homes, and onto the streets because of low wages.

Peggy Rivera, the Oxnard Commission on Homelessness’ chairwoman, spoke with the Ventura County Star about the homeless families in their city:

We have whole families that have lost their homes and don’t have the credit rating to get into another apartment and don’t have the savings to afford first- and last-month rent payments.

These are working families. They just don’t have the resources to put a roof over their head.

Another report conducted this winter by the Working Poor Families Project found that in 2009, “forty-five million people, including 22 million children, lived in low-income working families” — a population distressed over the past year.
