Dear Mayor Bloomberg,
I live and go to school in New York City. I do not understand why there are 20,000 kids sleeping in homeless shelters.
If you give homeless families a little help with paying rent, their kids will be able to grow up in real homes instead of scary shelters, and have a chance for the same opportunities as everyone else.
A shelter is not a home. Please help all NYC kids have the safety and stability of a real home.
