Bleak statistics, hopeful discussion at Philadelphia forum on homeless youth
By Pat Loeb, CBS Philadelphia | November 28, 2017
Stoneleigh Visiting Fellow Bob Listenbee is featured by CBS Philadelphia.
The statistics are bleak — 28 percent of homeless youth have been in the foster care or juvenile justice system, a third of the females are pregnant, and LGBT youth are over-represented. The emphasis on these statistics were on fixing them, not being defeated by them.
“I want to call upon all of you to take some action to address some of these specific problems and challenges that we have brought forth here today,” said moderator Bob Listenbee.
