Homeless & At-Risk Youth: Guides and Resources
In the United States, nearly 2 million young people will become homeless, lacking not only a home but the resources and protection they urgently need. Safe Horizon's Streetwork program is one of many across the nation committed to tackling the issue of homeless youth and to serving young people who experience violence, abuse, and exploitation as a vulnerable population.
You can join Safe Horizon to help make a positive difference for thousands of homeless youth in the New York City metropolitan region - and beyond. One way you can start is by learning more about homeless youth, including the issues they face and how nonprofit and government agencies work to help young people in crisis.
