3-year-old Miracle Cutler has definitely lived up to her name.
This past weekend, the NYPD 121st precinct got a visit from the little girl one year after she was brutally attacked and saved by the men and women of the Staten Island NYPD.
Miracle reportedly lost her mother and three sisters in a violent assault carried out by her mother’s 25-year-old boyfriend, while the family was living in a Ramada Inn hotel room. The hotel has since been turned over to the city of New York to provide housing for the homeless.
The Cutler family is not alone when it comes to the vulnerability of homeless men, women, children and families.
The Coalition for Homeless Families has some stunning numbers:
In December 2016, there were 62,674 homeless people, including 15,856 homeless families with 24,076 homeless children, sleeping each night in the New York City municipal shelter system. Families comprise just over three-quarters of the homeless shelter population.
On her special visit to see her heroes in the NYPD, Miracle wore an adorable dress and a big smile. The photos of their heart-warming reunion are below.
