Arizona Sonora News Service: Homeless youth find help in Tucson
According to the National Center on Family Homelessness, Arizona is the fifth worst in the United States for child homelessness. Every year, more than 62,000 children throughout Arizona are displaced through no fault of their own. Homeless youth are also four times more likely to drop out of school. Youth On Their Own in Tucson works to eliminate barriers to education for homeless youth by proving them with financial assistance, guidance and security.
