There are over 1 million homeless students in schools nationwide. Less than 25% of them will actually graduate High School. 

Children make up 27% — the fastest growing segment — of the U.S. homeless population, and there’s no end in sight; the recession has forced many families out of their homes, making these youth just another group on the long list of victims, moving from couch to couch, shelter to shelter.

The statistics on youth homelessness are staggering. In 2 years the number of homeless youth has increased by 100%. Sadly these children have been overlooked for far too long. According to the US Justice Department 1 in 3 children on the street will be forced into prostitution within only 48 hours. We must reach reach out with compassion and help these children who desperately need our help.

How can you help? Visit our Take Action page. But we highly encourage you to get involved in your local community. Sadly homeless youth are everywhere.  There are numerous organizations nationally and locally that are doing an incredible job helping these kids.

Here are just a few:

National Safe PlaceStand Up For KidsSafe Horizon, and Covenant House. These organizations run hundreds of shelters all throughout the U.S. Interested in volunteering at a shelter? Email us: info(at)forsakengeneration.com We'll get you plugged in!

What are we doing about it?

Forsaken Generation connects with organizations and shelters nationally that are helping children and youth who are homeless or victims of child sex trafficking. It’s all about: aware – ness (Webster’s Dictionary)

  1. Perception, knowledge; to have knowledge of something; implies that one has become alive to something and is on alert.

Awareness team: Our awareness team is a group of of dedicated individuals who are committed to ensuring that every person in America become aware of the millions of children we are working to help. Sadly few know that there are millions of homeless children in America, and that hundreds of thousands of children are sexually exploited each year.

How do we raise awareness and recruit volunteers ?

Advocacy Team: Our advocacy team works relentlessly to ensure that key pieces of legislation are passed that will help children who are homeless or victims of child sex trafficking. We do this by creating campaigns nationally that will engage policymakers constituents, and encourage them to ask their legislators to support key pieces of legislation that will help these children.

What are we working on now?
