In Arizona there are thousands of teens and young adults who do not have a permanent place to call home.

Arizona has a higher high school drop out rate than any other state, according to a national drop out report by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education published in January.

Homeless and unaccompanied youth are among those who are most at risk for dropping out of high school.
