Re: “Homeless kids up in state” (TNT, 2-2).
The article left some information out of the picture. My two grandsons have been in foster care for 14 months and are considered “homeless” by federal law because they don’t have a permanent foster care home. Not to mention they have been moved from home to home four times and are no longer together despite the fact one is a special needs child.
They have been transported from as far as Puyallup to a University Place school as required by law to keep their education stable at their school of origin, for which I am thankful. How many of the kids on the chart are considered homeless due to lack of permanent foster care placement?
