Homeless Youth in Columbus

Nov 26, 2015

Thirty percent of the homeless population is comprised of those under the age of 18. Homeless youths are ineligible for family shelters or foster care and often are a poor fit for adult shelters. Homeless youth drop-in center Star House recently opened up a new, larger facility to meet the demand for services in Central Ohio.
