Over the last year, families all over the world have been tested — emotionally and physically — by COVID-19. According to a release from the Red Cross, frontline workers like U.S. military service members have not stopped throughout this pandemic and this service takes a toll on them as well as their children. To honor these children, April was designated Month of the Military Child.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development released its 2020 Annual Homeless Assessment Report Part 1 to Congress. The report found 6,527 people experienced homelessness in Missouri on a single night in 2020, an increase of nearly 6% from 2019.
