Children, Youth, & Families

In the United States, 30% of the homeless population are families with children, and 6% are unaccompanied youth younger than age 25.

Our children, youth, and families research explores the impact of homelessness and housing instability on unaccompanied youth, young adults, and families with children. UCSF BHHI focuses on the links between homelessness, health, and access to public services among unhoused families and youth, including its impact on children's physical and mental health.
