Homeles Children StatisticsAccording to stats available from the King County Committee to End Homelessness, 8,349 individuals were counted as homeless in Seattle on a single night in January. Hundreds, perhaps thousands more were uncounted because they avoided the volunteers who were counting, bunked for the night on a couch at a relative’s house, or slept outside city limits.
36% of the homeless population consisted of single adult men; 13% were single adult women; 1% were unaccompanied youth; and 50% were families with children. Half of all the individuals in King County’s shelters are children aged 0-17 – an especially dire.
