Number of homeless Mainers drop

Press Herald - The percentage of Maine’s homeless who were without shelter this year was the lowest of any state and the overall number of homeless residents was down 13 percent from 2014, compared with a 2 percent decrease nationally. However, despite significant year-to-year fluctuation over the past six years, the overall number of homeless people in Maine was about the same this year as it was in 2010, while the number nationally has decreased 11.4 percent during that period.
