Homeless Youth and the Search for Stability

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Jeff Karabanow, Sean Kidd, Tyler Frederick, and Jean Hughes

Youth are one of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population. Although there has been much research on how youth become homeless and survive on the streets, we know very little about their pathways off the street and the many challenges of this process. Through interviews, rich qualitative prose, quantitative elaboration, and comic-book narratives, participants speak of courage, fortitude, strength, adversity, and at times, simple bad luck. Ultimately this book became a story of fragility, complexity, living “on the edge,” and the (re)-building of identity.
