Homeless Youth in the USA

A Vulnerable PopulationInfographic

By NIHCM Foundation

Each year, an estimated 4.2 million youth and young adults experience homelessness in the United States. Every night, thousands of young people experience homelessness without a parent or guardian – going to sleep without the support and stability of a family or a home.

Among homeless youth, 40% identify as LGBTQ and they have more than twice the risk of being homeless than their heterosexual peers. This infographic explores youth homelessness, risk factors for becoming homeless, the health toll associated with being homeless, and what can be done to address this crisis.
