The Public's Radio: HUD Report on Homeless Doesn't Tell Whole Story, Experts Say
An annual report from the Department of Housing and Urban Development found homelessness had decreased in Rhode Island by almost seven percent.
But Karen Santilli of Crossroads Rhode Island, the nonprofit which operates the state's largest homeless shelter said the annual survey is just a snapshot. It does not catch some more nuanced information about the state's homeless population.
“It's also important to look at over the course of a year the total number of households that will experience homelessness,” Santilli said.
