Cities build homeless shelters for LGBT youth
Only 1-8% of Americans, depending on the age group, identify as LGBT. Yet around 40% of the young people living on the streets or in shelters identify as LGBT, according to research by the Williams Institute at University of California, Los Angeles' Law School. The primary reason they end up without stable housing is family abuse or rejection. While LGBT youth have been more likely to experience homelessness for quite some time, cities are just starting to focus on this vulnerable population's needs.
