A hidden problem: youth homelessness

It’s estimated that more than 8,000 students in Minnesota’s schools are homeless. For many it’s not obvious that they are homeless, because they are able to stay with friends or family temporarily. But the impact of not knowing where they will sleep each night is severe. This hour we discuss the factors that often lead a young person to become homeless and what can be done to help.
