A University of Texas study estimated that 25% of youth experiencing homelessness are trafficked. #InOurShoesATX #EndYouthHomelessness
Of youth who run away, 41% have been abandoned by their parents for at least 24 hours and 43% have been beaten by a caretaker. #InOurShoesATX #EndYouthHomelessness
ICYMI LifeWorks is hosting our first annual #InOurShoesATX challenge! Participants are currently sleeping outside to experience a night out homeless. To learn more visit lifeworksaustin.org/inourshoes or donate here --> bit.ly/2Ehdr7M
About 80 percent of homeless youth (aged 12-21) use drugs or alcohol as a means to self-medicate to deal with the traumatic experiences and abuse they face. #InOurShoesATX #EndYouthHomelessness
Most youth get waken up and moved at least once during the night. We will be tweeting stats at the times we will be waking up our participants for a night out homeless. Stay tuned! #InOurShoesATX #EndYouthHomelessness
As our participants head off to bed, we want to remind you that this is the reality for many youth and families experiencing homelessness in Central Texas. (2 of 2) #InOurShoesATX #EndYouthHomelessness
50% of youth aging out of foster care and juvenile justice systems will be homeless within six months because they are unprepared to live independently, have limited education and no social support. (1 of 2) #InOurShoesATX #EndYouthHomelessness
