Chapin Hall Releases Additional Briefs on
Youth Homelessness

Dear colleagues:

Yesterday, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago released Missed Opportunities: Pregnant and Parenting Youth Experiencing Homelessness in America. This third Research-to-Impact brief based on Voices of Youth Count research presents findings related to the experiences of young people who are pregnant or parenting and don't have a stable place to live. Chapin Hall learned that rates of pregnancy and parenthood are high among youth experiencing homelessness, and that many of the young parents are homeless with their children. The brief recommends increasing collaboration among homeless service providers and providers in other systems, including early childhood, early intervention, education, and welfare. Visit for more information.

Chapin Hall's first brief, Missed Opportunities: Youth Homelessness in America  highlighted results from our national survey on unaccompanied youth homelessness. Findings show that nearly 4.2 million youth and young adults in America experienced some form of homelessness over the course of a year. Findings also so that the lack of a high school diploma or GED correlates more strongly than any other risk factor with experiences of youth homelessness, with young people without a diploma or GED being 3.5 times (346%) more likely to experience homelessness than their peers who completed high school. Visit for more information.

The second brief,  Missed Opportunities: LGBTQ Youth Homelessness in America, found that LGBTQ youth were more than twice as likely to experience homelessness as their peers, and were more likely to suffer adversities before and during homelessness. Visit for more information.

Stay tuned for the release of additional Research-to-Impact briefs later this summer.
