FEATURED QUERY: Do you rely on tips for a living? Tell us more
Almost 2 million children nationwide have had their lives disrupted by home foreclosures, according to one study.
Foreclosures force people to move, and moving is tough on children both socially and developmentally.
A recent study by First Focus, a nonprofit focused on children’s issues, found that children who move twice in one year are only half as likely as others to be able to read proficiently, and may have a greater chance of being held back. It also found that moving a lot reduces a student’s chance of graduating from high school by half.
