The Coalition released it’s latest report Youth Pathways In and Out of Homelessness in the Capital Region today. Here’s coverage from the Times Colonist:
“The stereotype is youth are homeless because they do things like quit school. It’s often the opposite. They become homeless and then can’t stay in school,” Wynn-Williams said. The report, Youth Pathways In and Out of Homelessness in the Capital Region, was done in partnership with the Community Social Planning Council and included input from service providers and local youth who’ve experienced homelessness. “We needed a better idea of why youth are becoming homeless here. Or to at least confirm what we suspected,” said Wynn-Williams.
