Family Intervention for Homeless Youth

Welcome to our Kim Wilson Housing library. This library collection contains research studies, reports and books related to housing vulnerable populations. Come back often as we update the collection on a regular basis. 

    WHAT IS FAMILY INTERVENTION?


     

    Family conflict is a major contributor to youth homelessness. The National Alliance to End Homelessness Alliance estimates that each year 550,000 unaccompanied youth run away or experience homelessness for a week or longer. Approximately 380,000 of these youth are under the age of 18. A comprehensive response is critically needed to meet the needs of homeless youth who are minors. Such a response can be informed by the knowledge of effective approaches that have been developed by practitioners on the frontline of serving homeless youth under 18.
