Each year, an estimated 6,000 youth in San Francisco find themselves without a safe place to call home. For many youth, living on the streets is safer than staying home because of violence, limited family resources and/or rejection. Many have been sexually, physically or emotionally abused and have mental health and substance abuse issues. Larkin Street’s youth inspire us all through their motivation and resilience.

We believe all youth should have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and reach their full potential.
