Most adolescents who experience homelessness do so as part of a family that includes at least one adult. This brief examines the well-being of adolescents who recently experienced homelessness with their families and continued to be part of the family 20 months later. Using data from the Family Options Study, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, this brief explores the housing situations, academic development, and social development of these adolescents.
