Youth Homelessness tells the moving stories of homeless young people and of people who have tried to help them. It is about the courage homeless young people show in the face of persistent neglect and abuse. It is also about the hope that can be given to them when there are committed and caring people in schools to look after them, when school programs are specially designed for them, and when support is forthcoming from the outside community.
