Nevada Ranks Poorly in Homeless Youth Report

Being without a home is not easy on anyone, but homelessness can be even more difficult for children. A new report shows just how many children have experienced homelessness in this country, and the numbers are shocking.

One in 50 kids have experienced homelessness. The report also says that most states don't have adequate services for the children. Researchers say the problem is getting worse.

Whitney Elementary has one of the highest populations of homeless students in the Clark County School District. This new report says more than 10,000 children in Nevada are without a home.
