Kimberly Tyler, a professor in the sociology department at the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, published “A Qualitative Study of Early Family Histories and Transitions of Homeless Youth” in 2006. In her study, she conducted in-depth interviews with a small group of forty homeless youth between the ages of 19 and 21 across four Midwestern states. Tyler’s open-ended questions guided the youths through their childhoods, asking specifically about several types of abuse. All interviews were carefully transcribed and examined, as researchers divided up the different abuse allegations. In the interviews the homeless youths revealed that thirty-seven of them had witnessed at least one parent abuse a substance, such as alcohol or marijuana.

We take these kids under our wings for one whole week, Monday thru Saturday, where they spend the night at camp with us and spend time away from the terrible environment where they live.

The goal I have for myself each year is to show love to at least one boy in the camp. I want that one boy to remember me and know that he can always reach me if anything happens.
Additionally, after the 3-6 months subsidized rent, survivors will be offered the options of paying for full rent on a sliding scale or gradually weaning off of supported rent over the course of another 6 months. If this program were created, survivors could immediately expect more safety, privacy, autonomy, and reduced stress (Figure 1). Over many years, this program may even decrease the number of homeless survivors in the city of Richmond, Virginia (Figure 1). Such a large project would require the
