Missed Opportunities: Youth Homelessness in America

Results from a national study conducted by Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago on unaccompanied youth homelessness in America reveal that “one in 10 young adults ages 18-25, and at least one in 30 adolescents ages 13-17, experience some form of homelessness unaccompanied by a parent or guardian over the course of a year” (Voices of Youth Count).

The report, Missed Opportunities: Youth Homelessness in America, documents stories from youth who are experiencing homelessness as well as provides insights on opportunities currently being missed that could help these youth reach their full potential.
