Fewer Homeless in Wisconsin

No doubt because of evil Scott Walker.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development report released to Congress on Thursday comes from a one-night count by local homeless advocacy agencies. The agency’s 2014 Annual Homeless Assessment Report for Wisconsin says the number of homeless people declined nearly 1 percent this year compared to 2013 and dropped about 4.5 percent from 2010.

There were 6,055 homeless people in Wisconsin during the January count, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. That’s a 0.8 percent decrease from the 6,104 homeless people counted last year.

A brighter spot might be the number of homeless veterans in Wisconsin, which declined 10.5 percent from last year and 33 percent since 2010.
