What Would You Do

image What would you do to Survive Homelessness? Would you climb into a dirty dumpster filled with trash, because at least inside a Dumpster you would be shielded from the wind and covered from the cold?

Would you find your way into a dark and abandoned building, huddle under newspapers, and try to ignore the rats scrambling on the floor around your feet?

Would you escape underground to the subway and lie on the dirty floor, praying that no one will kick you or hurt you while you sleep?

If you were a homeless kid, you might do any or all those things ... you might not have a choice.

Finding Your Way

image Unaccompanied homeless youth present unique challenges to existing homeless assistance systems. Most organizations are built around the needs of homeless adults and families – not unaccompanied young people. Homeless youth and young adults are at pronounced risk for physical abuse, sexual exploitation, mental health disabilities, chemical or alcohol dependency, and death.

With these limitations in mind, the Caresmatic Estates recommends the following as strategies to end youth homelessness:

  • Early and intense intervention plus family reunification
  • An expansion of long-term housing options consistent with the developmental needs of young people
  • After-care support for youth aging out of foster care
