Giving prominence to the voices of young people themselves, this study explores their attempts to exit street life--and looks at the supports and barriers that help or hinder them in this process. Youth between 16 and 24 are considered the fastest growing segment of the homeless population in Canada. While much has been written about street engagement and street culture, little attention has been paid to how youth move away from the street. From shelters and programs to mental health and drug use, this book examines the services that are available--and those that should be available--to help street youth find housing, income, and the strength needed to start a new life.
