KUOW: The State of Homeless Youth
Hear Star, a peer outreach intern with YouthCare, and Executive Director Melinda Giovengo discuss youth homelessness in Seattle from their perspectives on KUOW's The Conversation:
A recent tally of homeless young people in King County found nearly 700 people under the age of 25 without permanent housing. Seattle has become one of the nation's hotspots of youth homelessness. Are we ahead of the trend in homeless infrastructure, or lagging behind? KUOW talks to the directors of two homelessness youth services in the city, and a former homeless youth that now spends her time reaching out to those on the streets.
