This report is part of the overall homeless study conducted on October 22, 2015. It presents information on homeless youth, noting that nearly one-third of youth on their own were found outside of the shelter system.
Every three years, Wilder Research conducts a statewide survey of people who are homeless or living in temporary housing programs. The study includes counts and estimates of the number of people who are homeless and face-to-face interviews with homeless people throughout Minnesota to better understand the causes and circumstances of homelessness. 2015 homeless study results are also available on the Minnesota Homeless Study website.
Wilder Research operates as an independent research unit of the Amherst H. Wilder Foundation. As a nonprofit research and evaluation group, we work with nonprofits, foundations, and government entities to inform decisions and improve lives.
