How many young people are homeless?
Approximately 4.2 million youth and young adults experience homelessness every year in the U.S. That amounts to one in ten young adults ages 18-25 and one in thirty youth ages 13-17. In King County, at least 1,500 young people experience homelessness on any given night and three-quarters of those young people sleep outside because of lack of shelter or housing.

Why is youth homelessness unique?
Youth homelessness is different than adult homelessness; young people often couch-surf between friends and family and many do not identify as homeless. Homeless young people are at higher risk of exploitation and trafficking on the streets: about one-fifth of homeless youth report being trafficked and over one-third experience violence or assault. Additionally, young people’s brains are still rapidly developing and don’t reach maturation until the age of 25. For this reason, the adult homeless system is often unsafe and inappropriate for young adults.

Why is your support important?
Every young person has potential. For youth in particular, there is an inherent curiosity about the future and the possibilities of life. We must leverage this opportunity. Almost 50% of homeless adults in our community reference experiencing homelessness for the first time before the age of 25. Helping young people move ahead is our most effective—and humane—strategy to preventing and ending adult homelessness.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet.
