What does the homeless youth look like? You cant always tell. A Child with a backpacks, walking down the street. Could be any kid. In the U.S. alone, there are about 1.7 million homeless youth. This number is terrifying. Some of these adolescence have jobs. Some are in school. Many are hungry, scared, and cold, especially during the long, cold winter months. They could be trying to escape abuse and neglect. Many struggle with trauma, mental illness, addiction, or poverty. Donating just a couple of dollars to the CFSNH can get these struggling youth services they are in need of, or the basic necessities that many of us take for granted.
