Every year nearly 85,000 young adults 18-24 are added to the already growing 2 million homeless young adults living on our streets, in our shelters and in dangerous situations because they aren’t connected to a stable, caring family.

Outcomes for unconnected young adults are grim with a high percentage experiencing increasing poverty, early pregnancy, incarceration, forced prostitution, drug and alcohol abuse and joblessness.
Imagine Our Cost
The cost per year for taxpayers is an estimated $40,000 per homeless person.
young adults 18-24
