Every night, thousands of young people under the age of 18 are forced to sleep in shelters, at friends and relatives homes, or on the street. Many are young people from families affected by rising poverty rates and the declining supply of affordable housing. Many are youth that have been kicked out of their homes because they are gay. This piece highlights a young lesbian couple facing this crisis, shedding light on their everyday challenges and the sources of strength and inspiration that keep them going as they work to build a better life for themselves.
