This week, in the spirit of #GivingTuesday, we conclude our series with 7 ways you and your organization can end youth homelessness.
As our Runaway and Homeless Youth Awareness Month blog series continues, this week we turn our attention toward efforts to end youth homelessness in the U.S.
On any given night in 2016, there were 35,686 unaccompanied young people under the age of 25 experiencing homelessness across the U.S. Nearly one-third of these young people were residing in California. This week, in continuation of our Runaway and Homeless Youth Awareness Month blog series, we examine some of the characteristics of youth experiencing homelessness.
In recognition of November as Runaway and Homeless Youth Awareness Month, Applied Survey Research will be posting a series of blog posts highlighting the unique characteristics of young people experiencing homelessness, the challenges and successes found in responses to the crisis, and ways stakeholders can take action to prevent and end homelessness among young people in their communities.
