D.C. homeless shelter suffered a 9% budget decrease from city reductions, and worries the cuts are taking big toll on homeless youth in particular.
"Counselors at one of the city’s largest shelters for homeless youths have had to turn away more than 80 unaccompanied children — some as young as 12 or 13 — who came to them for help in the past six weeks after the city cut more than $700,000 from the shelter’s budget." --Annie Gowen, the Washington Post
