Losing Ground: The New Face of Homelessness

Description

 

Every night, thousands of young people under the age of 18 are forced to sleep in shelters, at the homes of friends and relatives, or on the street. Many are young people from families affected by rising poverty rates and the declining supply of affordable housing; many have been kicked out of their homes because they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered. This piece highlights three young people facing this crisis.
