Young Adults Are the New Face of Homelessness

Quotes from article referenced below:

  • "Young adults are the new face of homelessness."
  • "It's a group driven by two large converging forces: an economy that has been especially brutal on young people, and the large numbers currently exiting foster care."
  • "The largest driver of the young adult homeless population is the foster-care system."

Lisa, the economy has been tough on lots of people, however kids leaving care have less resources, skills and support then most. It is just sad that the government doesn’t take better care of it’s children.
