Runaway and Homeless Youth: Demographics and Programs


This report begins with a brief discussion of the reauthorization of and appropriations for the Runaway and Homeless Youth Program, followed by an overview of the runaway and homeless youth population. The report describes the challenges in defining and counting the runaway and homeless youth population, as well as the factors that influence homelessness and leaving home. In particular, youth who experience foster care are vulnerable to running away or becoming homeless while in care or after having been emancipated from the system. The report also provides background on the evolution of the Runaway and Homeless Youth Act from the 1970s until it was last amended in 2008. It then describes the administration and funding of the Basic Center, Transitional Living, and Street Outreach programs that were created from the act, as well as the functions of their ancillary components. Finally, the report discusses other federal programs that may be used to assist runaway and homeless youth.
