Youth Homelessness Surges to Jaw-Dropping Levels in Santa Clara County

Media invited to Sept. 26 Summit for Bill Wilson Center Study Results and Call to Action

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Youth experiencing homelessness in Santa Clara County has reached alarming numbers according to an upcoming study from Bill Wilson Center. While the 2017 Point-In-Time Count revealed that thousands of youth were sleeping on the streets and in shelters every night, BWC’s school survey shows there are thousands more students couch surfing with no permanent home. High school students, from public and private schools throughout Santa Clara County, are experiencing homelessness.

Results of the study, “Count Me! Youth and Young Adult Homelessness, Santa Clara County, California” will be announced at a press summit hosted by Bill Wilson Center along with a discussion around the issues and recommendations on how to address youth homelessness.
