(2/4/12) Definition of "homelessness" issue heats up in Congress!
HEAR US has long been proudly involved with the quest to get HUD to acknowledge the broader scope of homelessness as it affects the majority of millions of families and unaccompanied youth. Diane's constant blogging (invisible homeless kids) on this issue has illustrated the insanity of the issue. She's testified to Congress about the issue. And now the issue heats up. And Rumi, pictured below, traveled with his mom, friends and Diane to testify at the hearing called by Congresswoman Judy Biggert (IL) in December. (Links to media coverage of the 12/15/11 hearing)
