True Colors United and the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty have partnered to release the State Index on Youth Homelessness.

All 50 states and the District of Columbia were evaluated on their efforts to prevent and end youth homelessness. Information is based on 2019 data.

The report looked at 61 metrics in Ohio, and found the state needs policies to prevent homeless young people from coming into contact with the criminal justice system and needs more state-level help to protect them.
