Thousands of our youth are homeless, trying to survive on the streets of Orange County. Build Futures’ mission is to take these kids off the street and provide a path to a future free from homelessness and poverty for these youth.
- 30,562 documented homeless students attend Orange County Public Schools.
- 10,085 are high school students, almost doubled in three years, 2,242 will turn 18 this year and be homeless
- Homeless youth ages 18 to 24 are the worst hit by the recession and most overlooked by support services.
- Each night, the majority of the OC homeless population has no housing available to them.
Extended youth homelessness is directly related to chronic adult homelessness. Our community needs to give a hand up to these youth and help them become independent contributing members of our community.
