—————IMAGINE BEING 18 & ALONE—————
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.
—————IMAGINE THEIR FUTURE—————
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.
If we do nothing, in 5 years the total cost for unconnected young adults will reach $106.2 Billion Annually!
—————IMAGINE THEIR COST—————
The cost is far greater to young adults who are disconnected from stable, caring adults.
