At 17, her parental guardians’ struggle with chemical dependency and mental health issues forced her to flee from her home and drop out of high school. Meet Kristan
An estimated 4,000 youth are homeless on any given night in Minnesota. Kristan is not Alone.
These youth have a higher risk of being in a gang, using heroin, feeling depressed, attempting suicide, or being victims of sexual assault than their housed counterparts.
