Homelessness among children and youth has been increasing the past two decades. The number of homeless youth continues to grow, with about 2 million youths per year spending some period of time in emergency shelters or on the streets. Homeless children 12 years old or under are the fastest-growing subgroup of this population (Kidd and Davidson 2006; Witkin et al. 2005).
