Scope of the Problem
Unfortunately, there are hundreds of homeless and hungry children living right here in our own community, most of whom are school aged and sometimes un-reached by the traditional safety nets of our human service agencies. It is a little-known fact that county-wide, the population of homeless children averages about 1,000 (source: Volusia County School District office of the Homeless Liaison).
