This paper suggests that research has shown that street youth are running from homes characterized by domestic violence, parental drug and alcohol abuse, or child abuse and neglect. This packet describes federal support for helping runaway and homeless youth and reviews implementation of the “Street Outreach Program” and best practices. Resources are provided on the range of issues that the Street Outreach Program grantees and others must address in working with street youth. This paper asserts that most young people can, with the support of caring adults, deal with their past and move toward independence and adulthood. (National Clearinghouse on Families and Youth)
