2012 Youth Resource Guide from the Massachusetts Housing & Shelter Alliance

Among the most alarming trends is the increase in unaccompanied homeless young adults seeking services and shelter at MHSA member agencies across the Commonwealth. This young adult population, generally defined as individuals between the ages of 18 and 24, falls into a gap between services available to children and to older adults. For young adults who are fleeing unstable or dangerous family situations, exiting state systems of care, or otherwise lacking resources and support systems, finding a job and a place to live is a formidable task. The guide includes sections with information about housing, shelter, job
training, domestic violence services, and a number of other resources. The guide may be accessed here. This guide will also be available on the side bar of this blog as an ongoing resource.
