Abstract: Young adults who find themselves in a state of homelessness often do not have the resources or skills to provide consistent housing for themselves. In many cases the young adults who find themselves homeless often have a difficult past or other issues making it difficult to avoid homelessness. Research has shown that young adults ages eighteen to twenty-four are at risk for homelessness. This study examines the background of homeless young adults receiving services at Daybreak. The study will also examine the compliance of the clients to receive services on a consistent basis. The research from this study will give social workers or case managers working with this population an understanding of clients behavior. In turn, this could help the service delivery methods to homeless young adults.
