The National Conference of State Legislatures provides this toolkit on youth homelessness to support the estimated 4.2 million youth and young adults who experience homelessness each year. 700,000 of those youth are unaccompanied minors and the risk factors include family conflict, sexual orientation or sexual activity, school problems, and/or substance abuse. The toolkit includes sections on causes and consequences, definitions, federal policy, state legislative action, and a rich array of resources.
