It's because the percentage of homelessness among their parents is up.
And why is it up?
Because of the liberal and conservative strange-bedfellow alliance to push sub-prime security mortgages on those who couldn't really afford even those.
And, they really started to push it around the turn of the century when off-shoring and out-sourcing American jobs were also being pushed.
So sub-primers, as they were called, got their house .. and they began to furnish it .. .. and, one by one at first, these warehouse workers, manufacturing workers, transportation workers, carpenters, iron workers, plumbers, and the like, they began to lose their job to people in other countries overseas.
And then the job-loss rate picked up, as companies had to compete, and wage-slaves in other countries were cheaper to hire than sub-primers in America ..
.. And soon by the hundreds .. then the thousands .. .. sub-primers lost their jobs .. and couldn't find work any more .. and defaulted on their loans when the variable rates went up.
Meanwhile, very unscrupulous Wall Street types saw the writing on the worthless securities wall, and they concocted one of the biggest frauds in U.S. financial history, creating the sub-prime securities fiasco that crashed us all into the Great Recession.
When no one could then get their weekly business loan, they laid people off, and they closed their doors .. and unemployment shot up to 25%, the accurate rate.
Millions of adults couldn't find work .. and they became homeless .. they and their children.
Today, the accurate unemployment rate is down to around 12 percent perhaps -- it's hard to tell, since so many have fallen off the radar.
But, the percentage of living-wage jobs compared to before the Great Recession is way down, many still off-shored and out-sourced to wage slaves in other countries, not to mention in-sourced wage-slave illegals.
So, yes, there are many more homeless Americans in the U.S. then their were .. many more .. and, of course, that includes their children.
What's the solution?
I'm not sure.
But, one thing's certain: it won't involve any concocted by the wings of the political spectrum -- they're the ones who got us into this increased homeless mess in the first place.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.

Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
