How do we protect youth from homelessness?

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.
