National Homeless Youth Awareness Month

Homeless-Youth-Banner
November is National Homeless Youth Awareness Month. Each year, as many as 1.6 million youth per year may experience homelessness. Along with losing their home, community, friends, and routines, many homeless youth are victims of trauma. While trying to survive on the streets, youth are exposed to countless dangers, with increased likelihood of substance abuse, early parenthood, posttraumatic stress disorder, and a vulnerability to being trafficked. In support of this awareness campaign, the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) is providing resources to help communities, families, educators, mental health and child welfare professionals, and policy makers and advocates better understand and address the plight of homeless youth.
