The news came in a simple tweet on Tuesday from Youth On Their Own: “We have already served over 1,600 #HomelessYouth in #Tucson this year, officially exceeding last year’s record-breaking number of 1,588.”

According to a news release on the organization’s website, “The National Center on Family Homelessness ranks Arizona fifth worst in the United States for child homelessness. Every year, more than 62,000 children throughout Arizona are displaced through no fault of their own.”
