PHOENIX (AP) – America’s homeless population is graying.
This is a rapidly expanding group of disadvantaged and desperate people aged 50 and older who suddenly find themselves without a permanent home after losing their job, divorce, family death or health crisis during a pandemic.
Lawyers say most of this group do not have mental illness or drug problems.
Scientists estimate their numbers will nearly triple over the next decade, challenging politicians from Los Angeles to New York to come up with new ideas to shelter the latest of the baby boomers as they get older, sicker and less able pay in a spiral of rent.
American homeless people believe that gray people are more retired on the streets
