In Cambridge there were 540 homeless men, women, and children on a given night in 2013. Most are able to find room in emergency shelters or transitional housing, but approximately 70 individuals were found to be living outside in the middle of the night in January 2013. There is much needed to support these individuals and families get back on their feet.
