Today, millions of youth across the country do not have access to a stable home. For many of them, the effects of homelessness are not isolated to days or weeks or months. Youth homelessness has long-term consequences that undermine their education, their safety, and their future. Youth who do not have access to the support and resources that come with stable housing are far more likely to drop out of school, fall prey to exploitation and human trafficking, and remain homeless as adults.
