Help Line Statistics

Every year thousands of school children struggle with homelessness. They may be a member of a family struggling to find housing, or a single youth out on their own. Project Act has recorded the statistics of homeless youth by age, gender, grade, race and status, in order to help show the profiles of these children who are experiencing homelessness at a young age.
