Number of abandoned children in America

How many abandoned children are there in America?

1.3 million

Believe it or not, there are over 20 million homeless or abandoned children in the world today.  Statistics in the USA show the fact that currently there are 1.3 million homeless and runaway street kids, not counting children who were forced out of their homes, abandoned by the foster care system, or are part of a homeless family.  Needless to say, the average age of a homeless person in the United States is nine.  This is terrible.  Studies show the fact that 1,000,000,000 of the world’s families live on less than a dollar a day.
