About the Resource Library

Resource Library

The Resource Library contains Larkin Street publications and presentations, as well as other materials related to the issue of youth homelessness.

Each year Larkin Street publishes a report on the state of youth homelessness in San Francisco. This report provides demographic information, an overview of the needs of homeless youth, Larkin Street’s response to those needs, and program outcomes.

Larkin Street’s In Brief publication series provides information related to the homeless youth population, their issues and service needs, and service models to meet those needs.
