Sofas, Shelters and Strangers: A Report on Youth Homelessness in Niagara

This report was published by Niagara Region Community Services.

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

The growing number of homeless youth in Canada—some estimates suggest that youth represent one third of all shelters users (Laird, 2007)—makes youth homelessness a concern for every municipality. The following report outlines the design, methodology, findings and recommen- dations of a study of the causes and impacts of youth homelessness in the Regional Municipality of Niagara conducted between February 2009 and February 2010. The report outlines the find- ings from a study of 40 homeless youth and 20 chronically homeless adults who became homeless when youth.
