View Polygence scholar page
This literature review examines youth homelessness in the United States from the late twentieth century to present day. This paper identifies the categories of youth who are most susceptible to experiencing youth homelessness, such as those who identify as LQBTQ+ and/or BIPOC. This paper also looks at the causes of homelessness, including youth who have experienced/witnessed domestic violence, as well as how the foster care system can play a role in homelessness. Finally, current housing solutions such as Housing First and Rapid Re-Housing are identified and explained.
