Streetwork Project: Helping Homeless Youth

Nearly 70% of young people who become homeless say they became homeless in order to escape physical and sexual abuse as a child, neglect, and other violent crimes happening in their homes. This includes LGBTQ youth (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered or questioning).

Safe Horizon Services that Help Teen & Youth Homelessness

Safe Horizon began its youth and teen homeless program, Streetwork Project, in 1984. Our homeless youth and teen program gives at-risk youth a chance to reclaim their lives, their dignity, and self-worth through urgently-needed services.

  • Offers free legal, medical, and psychiatric services; individual and group counseling; practical and educational assistance; advocacy; HIV prevention; and many other services that homeless youth urgently need, all in a safe, non-judgmental setting.
