Focus on Single Men

How many of the homeless are single men?

a. 90 percent, all of them looking for single women…
b. 80 percent
c. 60 percent
d. 50 percent

d. 50 percent, or 51 percent to be exact. Most of the services for the homeless, especially in central locations are for single men, but there is a growing population of women and youth who are homeless. Services for single women and couples are sorely lacking. 17 percent of the homeless are single women. Around one third of Anawim attendees are women.
