I appreciate Banji chosing to have his Book dedicated to bring more awareness to the "invisible" homeless.
Did you know that children under 18 make up for roughly 27% of the homeless population in America? Or that 50% of the women and children who are homeless are running away from domestic abuse?
Fortunately, there are resources for all children in the the United States and limited shelters for women but in many countries, children have to fend for themselves. Often siblings just few years older than their younger brother or sister end up trying to care for them the best the can. They are truly the most vulnerable of our homeless.
