Young adults seeking public housing? Good luck. Youth reporter Kasey Saeturn examines the growing population of homeless youth in San Francisco, where as many as 1,600 young adults are without a home on any given night. Skyrocketing rental prices in major cities has led non-profit organizations to start building housing for homeless youth who might otherwise fall through the cracks. “If you are a young person trying to take college classes, there are extra rules that limit your access to Section 8 federal housing.” Check out the story that aired on NPR, from Youth Radio.
