October 2022Vol. 23, No. 8I Am Here: Vital Document Legal Hotline for Youth

Youth who are experiencing homelessness are a vulnerable population that needs tailored supports. Often, youth need documents, such as birth certificates, state identifications, or Social Security cards, to access those services. Youth who are experiencing homelessness, however, may not have access to these vital documents and need help navigating the legal processes to obtain them. The National Network for Youth provides a nationwide hotline to help youth struggling with homelessness obtain these vital documents.

More information is available on the National Network for Youth website.
