Guest: Natasha Slesnick, PhD, Professor of Human Sciences at Ohio State University  There are anywhere from half a million to two million homeless youth in America today. The estimates range widely because young people are notoriously difficult to track on the streets. They tend to steer clear of the traditional shelters and service centers set up to help the homeless community. Youth feel so unsafe in those settings, they’ll opt to stay in cars, on benches or in abandoned buildings.
