Each year, an estimated 4.2 million youth and young adults experience homelessness, and 700,000 are unaccompanied minors. The prevalence of youth homelessness is much the same in rural, suburban and urban areas (NCSL). The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically impacted these numbers.  

Who are “Homeless Teens and Young Adults”?

  • teens and young adults without a permanent or stable place to call home
  • teens and young adults who live in shelters or on the streets
  • teens and young adults staying in weekly or daily motels, living “doubled up” with another family
  • teens and young adults living out of their car, or residing with friends and sleeping on the couch

The Challenge
To identify and provide resources and support to homeless teens and young adults ages 14-24 who are in or want to be in school as they move from place to place, struggling to maintain basic needs.

Our Mission
To address the number one factor for elevated risk of  homelessness for teens and young adults, the lack of a high school diploma or GED.  By providing high school , college, and community resources on a one-stop, secure digital platform that is free and accessible 24/7 through a cell phone or the internet.

Our Ask
Is for  volunteers and donations to keep Dream Connect free and updated.
