Homelessness among youth is a problem that is growing in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. The purpose of this study was to examine the services currently available for this population and to assess whether or not they are sufficient enough to serve the population of young homeless adults. Research for the study was done by looking at existing records such as studies done by the Minnesota Department of Education, and the Minnesota Department of Education. A local study done by the Wilder Research Center on homeless youth and a program evaluation done by the Bridge Inc., was also used to obtain information for the study. The findings of the study indicated that there is a need for further services in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area. A program design was then developed. The program design includes the mission, goals and objectives, programming, evaluation, management style and budget. This program when developed will help to more effectively serve the population of homeless youth in this area.
