More than 3.5 million youth in the US experience homelessness each year. 

We WORK TO scale-up EFFECTIVE solutions to this crisis.

Point Source Youth is a national 501(c)3 dedicated to ending youth homelessness in 50 cities and towns in 10 years.

We aim to solve youth homelessness by advocating for, implementing, and evaluating three scalable and replicable youth homelessness interventions – family & kinship strengthening, short-term host homes, and rapid re-housing.

According to a national survey, nearly 1 in 4 young Black men, ages 18 to 25, who identified as LGBTQ+ reported explicit homelessness in the last 12 months.


‘…DO WE ALLOW OUR YOUTH TO BE HOMELESS AND SLEEP IN THE STREETS, AND NOT ANYONE CARE FOR THEM? OR DO WE STEP UP AND ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT—SOMETHING MEANINGFUL?’

Listen to activist and trans youth policy advocate Sophie Cadle talk about why it’s so important for transgender, non-conforming, and non-binary youth to be included in the fight to end youth homelessness!
