I've been adopted when I was three and then after my sister moved out I ran away a few times too many and ended up homeless.I learned that its a tough world especially when the nearest town was six miles away and family should of been top of my list instead of trying to live my life the way I wanted to.I was 14 first time I ran away.if I ever had the chance to adopt a child or children I would adopt from the usa only because a lot of kids here were just like me or don't have family like some ppl.

Just speaking up from Australia for America's kids. Don't want to hear of ANY homeless kids. US is doing it tough - keep your charity at home if it's all you can afford. If you are comfortable, charity doesn't have to STOP at home. A little goes such a long way for Vietnamese babies STILL being born damaged by Agent Orange, for instance.
Many have hydrocephalus - with heads like basketballs. They eventually die as parents can't afford treatment.

The American people are to busy with supporting programs that are not for us. Supporting a program to round up horses 168 billion dollars. Instead of putting a roof over childrens heads. We need to help them. Leave the Wild horses free and stop slaughter sending meat to other EU countries. Do things for our children. We have a billion dollar program that the BLM uses to round up horses send to slaughter they keep money (these are Federal owned horses) owned by YOU and you pay with your...

We have a billion dollar program that the BLM uses to round up horses send to slaughter they keep money (these are Federal owned horses) owned by YOU and you pay with your tax money. They are stealing. Children living in the streets. WE the people must do something. Get rid of a round up program and help the children billions go to them not the BLM. It is a disgrace in America our children are living in the streets. We all should be ashamed.

In this day and age not one person should be going hungry, this is America! If we have enough money to help those who do not live on American soil, then we should have enough to feed our own, I"m not against helping all who are in need; no matter the nationality, but we need to remember the old adage..." Charity begins at Home"! Our farmers are being paid for their crops, and there they sit and rot; with only a portion going to feed this nation.Farmers get paid more money by our own...

Our farmers are being paid for their crops, and there they sit and rot; with only a portion going to feed this nation.Farmers get paid more money by our own government in this manner than they do by being able to sell all of their crops. Our farmers are not being allowed to do what they love, their being held back from contributing fully to over populated nation, and ultimately it biols down to our own people going hungry. I find this very sad and very disturbing! In one word... It's sacreligeous.

HEY IF WE CAN GET THE SAME RESPONSE FOR EVERYONE WHOM SIGNED THE LAST PETITION I SIGNED; TO DONATE ONE DOLLAR FOR THE HOMELESS. WE WOULD HAVE THE HOMELESS IN HOMES THAT ARE EMPTY IN EVERY CITY. I KNOW FOR ONE (BEING A PERSON WHO WAS A HOMELESS TEENAGER) KNOW THAT IF YOU GIVE THEM A HOME. THEY WILL BE APPRECIATIVE AND TRY REAL HARD TO FIND WORK OR GO TO SCHOOL TO LEARN A SKILL. THAT IS WHAT THEY REALLY NEED. A SKILL! SORRY GUYS, I SIGNED THE PETITION LAST NIGHT AND WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW IT...

HEY IF WE CAN GET THE SAME RESPONSE FOR EVERYONE WHOM SIGNED THE LAST PETITION I SIGNED; TO DONATE ONE DOLLAR FOR THE HOMELESS. WE WOULD HAVE THE HOMELESS IN HOMES THAT ARE EMPTY IN EVERY CITY. I KNOW FOR ONE (BEING A PERSON WHO WAS A HOMELESS TEENAGER) KNOW THAT IF YOU GIVE THEM A HOME. THEY WILL BE APPRECIATIVE AND TRY REAL HARD TO FIND WORK OR GO TO SCHOOL TO LEARN A SKILL. THAT IS WHAT THEY REALLY NEED. A SKILL! SORRY GUYS, I SIGNED THE PETITION LAST NIGHT AND WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW IT SADDENS ME TO SEE PEOPLE HURTING/KILLING CHILDREN.
OVER ONE MILLION PEOPLE HOMELESS PEOPLE ARE ACTUALLY TEENAGE CHILDREN. JUST LIKE I WAS A HOMELESS TEENAGER. WE NEED TO HELP OUR YOUTH AND KEEP THEM FROM BECOMING PEOPLE HURTING OTHERS BECAUSE NO ONE CARED ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GET THEM THE EDUCATION THAT THEY NEEDED. I STRUGGLE EVERY MONTH, BECAUSE, I HURT MY BACK AT WORK AND AM UNABLE TO WORK NOW SINCE JUNE. NOT CRYING FOR A PITY PARTY, JUST USING MYSELF AS AN EXAMPLE!
I REALLY COULDN'T GIVE A HOOT IF YOU CARE ABOUT ME OR NOT, BUT, THE HOMELESS NEED THAT SECURITY OF A HOME, ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS. I GO THROUGH THE CITY OF LAFAYETTE. I SEE A BUNCH OF BUILDINGS EMPTY. WHERE HOMELESS CAN HAVE SHELTER THE BUILDINGS ARE LEFT EMPTY! IT SADDENS ME! I WAS A CHILD AND LEFT OUT IN THE COLD.... I TELL YOU IT WAS NOT FUN! ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS USE DRUGS TO TAKE THAT PAIN AWAY.... THE EMPTINESS IS THE WORST PART! ANYWAY WHAT I AM SAYING IS, I NEVER HAD A GOD OR A NETWORK SUCH AS FACEBOOK AND NARCOTICS ANONYMOUS. CURRENTLY I ATTEND MEETINGS IN LOUISIANA AND CLEAN FROM ALL MOOD ALTERING DRUGS EVEN ALCOHOL - BECAUSE THAT TOO IS A DRUG - 12 YEARS ON APRIL 7 2012. IT TOOK DEVINE INTERVENTION FOR ME. I DIED A FEW TIMES BEFORE I GOT CLEAN IN 2000. I AM A GOOD PERSON WITH ONE COMMON GOAL WITH THIS ARTICLE, TO GET OUR TEENAGERS HOME!

Before politicians and the economy puts its people first, we will have to rely on each other in our communities, to help those in need. Support the organizations that are on the frontlines helping those most in need, shelters, food banks, Salvation Army, the Red Cross. So many of us indulge in more than we need, and could spare enough to make a difference in someone else's life. A simple gesture can go a long way. We need to be more attentive to those around us, help our neighbors, our...

Before politicians and the economy puts its people first, we will have to rely on each other in our communities, to help those in need.

So many of us indulge in more than we need, and could spare enough to make a difference in someone else's life. A simple gesture can go a long way. We need to be more attentive to those around us, help our neighbors, our schools who often are in a better position to recognize children in need. What is this world coming to if we can no longer protect our children and provide for them?

I live and work in Saudi Arabia as an ESL Teacher, and many people in the world think that the streets are paved with gold in American, and cannot believe American kids are homeless! And yet... they are... But, we can fund wars, give money to foreign countries like Egypt, Pakistan, and more, without a thought to hungry children in America. I think this is very sad, and something needs to be done about it. We can do better...
