Handbook Connects Homeless Youth, Supporters to Legal Options

Handbook Connects Homeless Youth, Supporters to Legal Options

South Florida Gay News - April 27, 2018

Up to 1.6 million youth experience homelessness each year. While that number alone is compelling, the nonprofit True Colors Fund also said that almost half of those youth (about 40 percent) identify as LGBT. In Florida, a partnership has developed to address legal issues and options for homeless youth and their supporters. The coalition is publishing a "Homeless Youth Handbook" and companion website that is two years in the making. Law firm Baker McKenzie leads the partnership, which includes Disney, the American Bar Association's "Homeless Youth Legal Network's Pro Bono Project" and the Florida's Children First organization.
