Stephen Gaetz is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at York University and Director of the Canadian Homelessness Research Network (Homeless Hub).  His research indicates that 1 of 5 shelter users are youth, and 1 of 3 of youth who are homeless are likely to graduate from highschool.  These statistics are startling.....So what can we do?  What do we need to know?

Recommendations include putting an emphasis towards prevention and the creation of various programs, including those centred on education and outreach.
