Help for Runaway and Homeless Youth

Each year, thousands of youth run away from home, are asked to leave their homes or become homeless. It is estimated that within the United States, 500,000 to 2.8 million youth, are currently homeless. To address this growing problem, many organizations in Michigan offer support services, emergency shelter, counseling, food, and clothing for runaway and homeless youth. These services are designed to help runaway and homeless youth transition to independent living and become self-sufficient.
