This year, 496 homeless adults said they had children living with them. That’s an 8 percent increase since 2011, and a 36 percent increase since 2010. MDHA estimates that nearly 3,000 Dallas Independent School District students are homeless. … MDHA also reports that it found 190 homeless youths unaccompanied by parents, a 272 increase over last year.

This survey was done by MDHA, an organization whose goal is to end chronic homelessness in Dallas by 2015.
