Top 3 Reasons why youth homelessness exists
- Family Problems: Many youth run away from home because of problems such as emotional and sexual abuse, mental health disorders of a family member, substance abuse and addiction of a family member, and parental neglect.
- Transitions from foster care and other public systems: Youth who are a part of the foster care system are more likely to become homeless because of the lack of resources available to youth aging out of the system.
- The economy: Some youth become homeless when their families fall into difficult financial situations resulting from lack of affordable housing, difficulty maintaining a job, lack of medical insurance, or other benefits.
End youth homelessness today. Support House Bill 135.
