From Emergency Services to Permanent Solutions: Addressing Youth Homelessness

5:00pm - 6:00pm

Stephen Gaetz discusses the problem of youth homelessness and how we can develop permanent solutions

One in five shelter users are youth. 25 to 40% of youth experiencing homelessness self-identified as LGBTQ, and 40 to 70% of homeless youth have mental health issues compared to 10 to 20% of housed youth. On the program, we discuss the crisis of youth homelessness in Canada and how we might better respond to the problem.

Dr. Stephen Gaetz is associate professor in the faculty of education at York University in Toronto and he is the director of the Canadian Homelessness Research Network. He is the author of a new report ? Coming of Age: Reimaging the Response to Youth Homelessness in Canada.
