    Winter this year has been particularly brutal, reaching record-breaking (or, at the very least, feels like record-breaking) temperatures, windchills, and snowfall. No group of people understand this better than the homeless in America. Unfortunately, there is a heartbreaking amount of homeless people in the United States. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development estimates that there are approximately 600,000 men, women, and children without a home to go to in any given night. Of those, 25% are children and 15% live together as families. The United States is the richest country in the world but, for a number of reasons, a huge chunk of its society are out on the streets with nowhere to go. And given the terrible winter conditions this past year, their plight just became worse.
