RUNAWAY & HOMELESS YOUTH ACT



Runaway and Homeless Youth Services play a crucial role in preventing sex trafficking, and provide an essential lifeline to the most vulnerable youth in New York, providing essentials such as food, shelter, counseling, and medical care.

New York State has cut funding for these vital services by nearly two-thirds over the last several years. Unlike the budget, the need for the services have not decreased-- youth shelters in New York City are turning away hundreds of homeless youth every month.

Contact key decision makers today through The Citizen's Committee of New York's website & urge them to restore funding for these essential services!
