November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month

In 2021, youth under the age of 18 made up roughly 18% of the unhoused or homeless population in the United States. Often youth are exposed to conditions that make them more vulnerable to risks for respiratory diseases, trauma, mental illness, substance use and misuse and sexually transmitted diseases.

This November, let's unite to raise awareness, provide support, and work towards a future where no young person has to endure the hardships of housing insecurity.
