In May 2020, John Burton Advocates for Youth surveyed the 82 organizations serving youth funded through the Homeless Emergency Aid Program to understand the impact of COVID-19 on their education, housing, health, safety and employment. The results found that homeless youth are significantly impacted by COVID-19 and that homeless youth providers are increasing services to address the issues youth are facing.
