    Homeless Youth in Maine: Services and Supports Available for Northern Maine Counties

    -Homeless youth are not kids who have “run away from home” – they have been rejected, thrown out or escape from dangerous home circumstances
    -Many of these youth have mental health issues due to poverty, child abuse, living in a home where there is substance use, physical abuse, etc.
    -Each of these kids needs time and support to develop trust, as they have been disappointed so many times before by adults in their lives
    -Success happens for so many of these kids
    -Important to provide food, address Maslow’s hierarchy in order to create a trusting relationship where you can then help the youth
