Springfield At Top Of Homeless Problem

Homelessness among families with children is an ongoing problem in Springfield, according to new federal data. 

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says Springfield has the second-highest level in the nation among small cities in that category, and also has the highest homeless population in Massachusetts outside of Boston. 

HUD estimated nearly two-thousand people were in the homeless-with-families group in Springfield this year.
