Textchildren facts — There are an estimated 100 million children living in the streets in the world today. Children living on the streets are especially vulnerable to victimization, exploitation, and the abuse of their civil and economic rights. International indifference to the problem has led to continual neglect and abuse of these children.
I am glad that someone is doing something but is not enough!

I had an 1800's farm house on my farm in Kansas. I had the thing bulldozed under BECAUSE of the transients. The last thing I'd want is for them to go in there, have the thing collapse, or them start a fire and get injured or killed. They, or their family would then attempt to sue me. That's the problem with this idea. They'll go in, steal all the copper pipe and anything else they can sell, and when one of them gets hurt, someone will provide them a lawyer to sue the property owner. Bad idea.
