One may also ask, where do homeless children stay? Homeless children live in almost every city in California, but are clustered in urban and agricultural areas. Eighty-five percent are living “doubled up” with other families, 4 percent live in motels or hotels, almost 7 percent live in shelters and the rest are considered “unsheltered,” or living on the street.

What do you do if you see a homeless child?
If you see a parent with kids who seem to need help, you can approach and ask if they have a place to stay or need the address of a shelter intake facility. You can tell them to visit the Coalition's Crisis Intervention Program – especially if they say that they have been denied shelter.
