In January 2020, on the brink of the pandemic, there were 580,466 people experiencing homelessness in America, according to the most recent count by the National Alliance to End Homelessness. It is the greatest number of homeless people in the U.S. since 2013. What’s more, demographics show that men are far more likely to experience homelessness than women. Of every 10,000 males, 22 are homeless. For females, that number is 13, the organization reports.
