We were encouraged to see such a broad audience participate in this year's Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, from the widespread use and sharing of our new infographics and interactive tools to the thoughtful perspectives on family homelessness you shared with us. If you haven't already, explore these new tools to learn about children experiencing homelessness and food insecurity across America and in your community.
November 14 was GIS Day—a day to learn about geography and the uses of geographic information systems (GIS) technology. ICPH uses GIS regularly in our work to help other visualize homelessness. In honor of GIS Day, ICPH released a new map exploring the overlap between child homelessness and low access to nutritious food.
