Challenges Faced by Youth Experiencing Homelessness

Youth who "age out" of foster care or those who are experiencing homelessness can face tough barriers including:


Unstable housing 

Lack of adequate elementary and secondary education

Lack of employment and job training

Problems with physical health, behavioral health, and general well-being

Lack of access to health care

Justice system involvement

Lack of social connections


At Youth Empowerment Siskiyou, we have been working to develop a Homeless Youth Case Management program to provide youth experiencing barriers like these with resources.
