Youth homelessness is often rooted in family conflict. Other contributing factors include economic circumstances like poverty and housing insecurity, racial disparities, and mental health and substance use disorders. Young people who have had involvement with the child welfare and juvenile justice systems are also more likely to become homeless.
Many homeless youth and young adults have experienced significant trauma before and after becoming homeless and are particularly vulnerable, including victims of sexual trafficking and exploitation. Youth who identify as LGBTQ; pregnant and parenting youth; youth with special needs or disabilities, and youth of color, particularly African-American and Native American youth, are also more likely to become homeless.
In 2020, more than 30,000 people in Harris, Fort Bend, and Montgomery Counties accessed some type of homeless service, and when you include prevention and other services (like clothing or food assistance), the number jumps to more than 45,000 people. The 2020 Homeless Count & Survey shows that we can expect to see 3,974 people experiencing homelessness at any given moment in the Houston region.
In the Houston region, 50% of homelessness is caused by an economic crisis (job loss, bills become higher than earnings), debunking common stereotypes that homelessness is overwhelmingly caused by substance use – which actually accounts for less than 10% of homelessness locally.
