When we think of the dangers of life on the streets, most of us think about cold temperatures and not having enough food to eat. We think of people with addictions and mental health problems who struggled to home down jobs and homes. We don’t often think about the dangers that teens and young people face when they are homeless.
Most homeless youth runaway because their situation at home is worse than life without a bed to sleep in. About half of runaways even say that their parents or guardians knew or encouraged them to leave.
About 80% of homeless youth use drugs and/or alcohol to self-medicate in dealing with the traumatic experiences and abuse they face. (Do Something)
Youth who run away from home multiple times decreases their chances of completing high school by nearly 20%. (1-800-Runaway)
Question: What do you think is the best way to help a teen with a traumatic home life?
