Research suggests that most homeless youth have experienced multiple traumatic events both before becoming homeless and once on the street.Youth workers who take a trauma-informed approach ask their young people, "What's happened to you?" rather than "What's wrong with you?"

As trauma-informed care has become standard at many youth-serving organizations, NCFY has covered the approach in several podcasts and Primary Sources articles and in an issue of our periodical for youth workers, The Exchange.
