More than a quarter of a million people in the United States stay at some type of homeless shelter. One out of seven of those people is a youth, age eighteen or younger. Readers will learn that teens are especially vulnerable to the risks and consequences of living in a homeless shelter. The lack of privacy and the uncertain and chaotic atmosphere in a shelter often contribute to teen anxiety and depression. This revealing volume details the skills that can help teens cope with living in a homeless shelter and outlines the ways and tools for moving beyond it.
