You can support local programs, services and long-term solutions that have the power to shut the door to chronic adult homelessness—and save lives.
No young person chooses to be homeless.
- They might have had a difficult home life, been a victim of abuse or struggled with addiction.
- Violence accounts for at least 60% of the reasons young people are forced to leave home.
- Whether it’s couch surfing or relying on shelters, these options are short-term, unstable and quite often dangerous.
- Without intervention in the first two months, young people can be bound to life on the streets.
